One Hundred Men

Paul Conneally Little Onion Haiku Haibun

We take my mum and dad, both in their eighties, to Liverpool for a couple of days. My mum has wanted to see Anthony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ for a long time. A cold, windy and wild day at Crosby beach. Together we watch the tide go out, slowly revealing one hundred metal statues, casts of Gormley himself, naked, looking out to sea.
