• Description

    The new plinth at the northern end of Stockton-on-Tees's recent town centre refurbishment provides a display place for appropriate paraphernalia in support of the many and various public events held in this wonderfully open space. The Tour of Yorkshire Cycle Rally will be in the area shortly I'm hoping that there will be bike up there and maybe a representation of Sir Bradley Wiggins! We shall see. The poem on the facing is by Mark Robinson a Stockton-on-Tees arts consultant with a number of published poetry collections to his name, the most recent being 'How I Learned to Sing'. His subject matter is the industrial and cultural transformation of the North of England from the Miners Strike to the Big Society. In its own modest way Stockton's plinth is a contribution to that transformation. THE INFINITE TOWN A Slice Of Future Has Tracked Us Down The River’s Freshness The Afterfalsh of Fireworked Skies These Stones Listen To The Infinite Town In The Rasp Of Morning The Slow Breath Of Dusk A Hope That Now And Here May Be Somewhere To Settle And Train Ourselves To Dream The Infinite Town By Mark Robinson
