Today Rod Bugg's 'biscuits' have appeared in Looms Lane, celebrating the plasticity of clay. The poem is by Sue Burge.
hard tack each one
weevil ridden survivors
of shipwreck and mutiny
how sailors would have loved
to discover honey
locked in these bonehard rusks
thick unexpected slick
their rolling dreams sweetened
with the buzzing of an English summer
