on light

everywhere building
layers of steel, concrete, glass
towers become walls

n.b. This is Leeds, but could be anywhere that development is taking place in England; dulling the landscape, blocking the light. Higher and higher, filling in the sky.

on birdsong

frost feathers windscreens
sharp lunarian light
blackbird's confusion


n.b. City living can be exhausting, not least when an excess of light blurs night with day. Birdsong can be heard at all hours, under a clear sky when a full moon rises.

on morning

woken by birdsong
aware of shifting cars below
man vomits in street


n.b. It must be Monday.
