The following piece was produced during the Creative Future Museum Tales course in the summer of 2014. The course, run in partnership with Brighton Museum and Art Gallery and funded by the Arts Council, enables marginalised writers to be inspired to write by museum artefacts and its surroundings.
Weekend of Pleasure by Moray Sanders
A weekend of pleasure unrolling like a scroll at my feet.
Not hurriedly with breathless anticipation, excitement, expectation
But lazily, languidly uncurling, showing, in part, the way the hours will
Sweetly pass. Then, pausing with almost agonising teasing,
Before slowly revealing more of the delights to come.
