Craig Dobson

< Back to Issue Three


When Angels Speak

they talk like paramedics:
comforting, professional,
but direct, wanting answers.

Drawn to your greed for
their experience and skill,
nevertheless they must know
what they’re dealing with –

what illness or condition,
what accident or crime
decreed a pavement’s precipice
or the cliff edge of a soiled bed

to be the theatre of epiphany
from whose front row you
watch them perform the deft
and touching show of all they need.

Craig Dobson’s had poems and short stories published in several UK and European magazines. He’s working towards his first collection of poetry.
