Judith Taylor




From where I sat
I thought he was wearing
red shoes

an eccentric choice with all that
so correct black
and I liked him for it.

Not until he stepped down
did I see they too
were black, ferociously

polished; and that blood shade
was only the reflection
of something underfoot.


Judith Taylor lives and works in Aberdeen. Her poetry has been published widely in magazines and her first full-length collection, Not in Nightingale Country, was published in 2017 by Red Squirrel Press.   Website: http://sometimesjudy.co.uk/
