The streets ring to the silent steps of converse rubber soles
An old Allegro passes by in rust and harvest gold
A two tone classic and no mistake an automotive gem
Ask the vicar of Longbridge he drives one of them
A neurasthenic outlook, a quirky kind of smile
The ghosts of heavy industry they haven't these empty miles
Empty miles of illness devoid of any rest
No need for tumble weed its wilder than the west
Bush hammered concrete blocks in brittle shades of sand
Brutal yet luxurious in temporal demand
Whose sky bound elevators penetrate the dark
Illuminating memories of my nephew
Paul James Clarke
