Walk through Salford

frosted sunlight cobweb shimmering windowpain in dog ear d dirty buddy-holly squalor. beautiful window pane frame glass & manic mounted cds wild & sun tickled feels scribbly new-born in the shakingfeet, rolling, rolling hands reaching from their grubby roots & changing record side. who drew moustache on the back? Who wrote original coral record fucked? Has Alan Jones 10 Deanshirt Road ever been to a rave? Is this all i can think as the wavey filthy spidery windowsunstreetplace does its best to look its best in her nicest pink & laugh out loud silly frown
