At Hawthorn Time

Side one: The Boundway

Jack walked the old Roman road north as thousands had before him: Diddakoi, tinkers, prophets, fools; the footsore army of men who once tramped England's byways looking for work. He navigated by a kind of telluric instinct, an obscure knowledge he had learned to call on even when the land he walked through was unfamiliar: the wind on his face; the pull of the water table deep beneath the ground; the change from chalk to greensand to lias under his feet.

Side two: Babb Hill

It was so quiet up there, so still. Howard pictured people sleeping, below him, in their thousands: safely tucked up in bed, sunk in their ordinary lives... The radio felt comforting in his hands; it was the way the knob clicked on and the dial glowed, surrounding him with familiar noise.

He clicked the radio off and let the hill's silence rush back.
