A Higher State of Consciousness by Charles Christian

Far up on a building site
a brickie takes a break
shirt off, bare chested
he sits cross-legged
on a window-ledge
basking in the mid-morning heat
clutching a mug of tea
smoking a roll-up
reading The Sun
like Buddha on a high rise
the Buddha of the Frogs
the Buddha of the White Van Men.

Charles Christian is a former barrister and Reuters correspondent who now writes about┬átech, geek stuff, folklore, pop culture, medieval history, the just plain weird, and anything else he thinks you’ll enjoy.
