When I lived in the Dennistoun and Haghill, the Necropolis and it’s magnificent view to the west were part of my regular running route.


Young Goths in the Necropolis Findlay Napier

Up there in the graveyard where all the weirdos go
I saw you making footprints in the freshly sprinkled snow
You trampled out a pentagram, arms wrapped about your chest
Through the spires to the islands you stared out to the west

Up there in the graveyard the city of the dead
You were lady mayor and I did everything you said
You summoned all the demons but none of them appeared
Snow melted in the afternoon, the magic disappeared

A genius of memory
We walked among the stones
I felt your fingers touching mine
I felt safe and free

When he wasn’t talking with the birds or ringing on his bell
St Mungo fished for salmon at the bottom of this hill
Here in the Necropolis, John Knox disapproves
Of all your shouting and your pacing and your god with horns and hooves

We waited on the bridge of sighs for you to check your phone
Your mother came to pick you up, then she drove you home
I walked up past the gravestones, looked back out to the west
I listened to the hoodie crows and wondered what comes next
