Having attended another simple but significant memorial service yesterday, I’m trying out a new nom de plume on an old poem…

Break in Bulk

A break-in-bulk point is a place where goods are transferred from one mode of transport to another, for example the docks where goods transfer from ship to truck.

The thriving town

Between power and sound

Grows rich on the bounty of friction

Til supplies and demands

Across foreign lands

Slows to a trickle of fiction

 – Babe Simple, 1973
