London, November, okay

November 15, 2011


found me some sun


and it shines this morning

on the applecheeks and pinstripes

and bulbous cabs and pubs all called Crown and Horse and Great


and musicals are blooming on every corner

and bouquets of statues

(mobile and immobile)

are gathered in squares and circuses


tourists scamper across the crashing collage of lost empire

and New Britain steel-and-glass and

the post-modern colonialism of Starbucks (and its bastard cousins) wallpapering the streets

and the Christmas lights starting to come into bud, mimicking in reds the greening of spring,


songs about London

chase my ears

through the streets
