Help yourself for free / Share our table

Wendy Niblock

A box of perfume testers lies on a pavement with a sign telling people to help themselves for free.

Our street is no mean feat.
We love to talk and take a seat
with our neighbours who share
stories and love and all sorts of fayre.
Our street’s Whatsapp is full of pings
offering up all kind of things
that otherwise would end up in bins.
How good it is that other people’s waste
is seen as treasure in other’s eyes and taste.
