celebrating and creating our own LGBTQ+ history in honour of Sheila McWattie

day twenty four

Hallowe’en 1987


the tartan flash of your scarf as you appeared at the top of the platform at Euston


the beam of your smile as you ran towards me hurtling a trolley to scoop up all my worldy possessions crammed in cardboard boxes


the look of sheer delight across your face as you held my face and we kissed, a long deep kiss, and a warm knowing glow hummed between us as we took the first steps to setting up home together sharing the weight of the wobbly trolley up the sloping platform.
