FRIDAY 17th JULY 2009.

The crack in the window
Sill is deeper than the
Paint that has parted at
The weather’s request,
Deeper still than the
Concrete sea bed it reveals;
Fissures glisten when
Sunlight rolls over them,
Hinting at deeper issues
Beneath their creases,
As water marks reflect their
Edges like an empty delta’s vein work.

Whilst up above the
Glass is stained with
The soot and smoke of
Motor vehicles and patterned
In Tiffany like refinements,
And wooden frames
Are pared to reveal rotten
Cigarillo flakes,
And both rely upon
The granite base to
Shoulder their work load,
Regardless of how they’re seen.
