News From Dartford


   
one hand on a stopped clock 
weather-vane stuck in jeopardy
from norman towers logical crows fly 
but the warren below holds many shocks
concealed obstacles, stumbling blocks 

homeless heap at the edge of the high street
not a symbol to hang a story on

empty crisp packet tumbleweeds past
streamlined cars full of themselves outstripped

Oh this is deep.

One for the homeless.

Love the last line
