From ‘View of Valleys High Street from Café Window’, Jonathan Edwards, NWR 100:

Out there, policemen in attention-seeking
fluoro-vests eye up a single mam
pushing a pram, her head down and her face
so much a frown, it’s like she’s trying to mow

the pavement….

Jonathan Edwards’ first poetry collection, My Family and Other Superheroes, will appear from Seren next year. In 2012, he won second place in the Cardiff International Poetry Competition.
