The Fatal Wink Notting Hill Carnival 2019
Like an ornate carved figurehead from the prow of an ancient dreadnought
A mermaid calling for the old mariner’s perdition at the ragged crags of Masquerade
Drifting down Chepstow with the flow, throwing winks and glances at the drowning
Wearing a heavily stained blouse as a negligee, is it blood or is it paint, who would know ?
