    Wasn't the big dipper at New Brighton a figure of 8? Here are some of the other attractions.

    Hi Ged

    Inspired by the photograph you posted.

    Nothing to Hide

    The couple neck high
    on a rickety ferris wheel
    above the muddy beach,
    the forsaken fairground;

    no one else to brave
    the Tunnel of Love, gamble
    a shot for a Valentine bear.
    The gondola sways

    in the New Brighton breeze,
    lips, tongues, hands, swarm:
    intrepid explorers, for
    a lifetime or just now,

    dangling in mid-air.
