1997 and a circle of students have learnt The Lady Of Shallot by heart.
In other parts, they are the big brass band and year seven perform a city coming to life.
Synthesized popcorn summons each player, city slicker, tourist, window cleaner, homeless.
Romeo and Juliet stand on desks and chairs to get the levels right. Not today, miss, I’m on my period.
Further away, the markets, wedding dress shops, and Skipton Castle.
An old oak tree fills the small courtyard and Juliet eats hot new potatoes with olive oil and salt out of a paper bag.
I climb a new mountain on the other side of the world and look back at it all through my Claude Glass.
