Tuesday Poem: Perrymead by Anna Livesey

There was no garden or bush, only bare grass and a house, very close on the left. A new house, built to look old. Written in stone letters above the door was the word ‘Community’. There were several other houses nearby in what used to be the piggery. The creek had disappeared and the hills were much, much flatter.
