Bones, bleached white

By the unrepentant sun

Discovered, uncovered

Unsentimental reality



Truth and lies

The history of something

Like dug up bottles

Cleaned and put on display

Fossilised yesterdays

Buried for tomorrows’ joy



Tower blocks

Now empty shells

Cold blood, beating heart

Woodchip, larch-lap and pebble-dash




Glistening steel, stay clean glass, environmental impact.
