Bridge Bluster

Poetry. London – river, reflection, routes.
Ink drawing illustrations by the poet.

‘For a bridge named after a battle,
This is a militantly peaceful design,
For a platform in Portland stone.’

~ ‘Waterloo’

‘Workmen walk a gritty shore,
Nestled loose in London’s core.’

~ ‘London’

‘This really surprised me
For I had not seen
The whole thing coated
In a thick olive green.’

~ ‘Hammersmith’

‘A voluminous launch with magpie looks careens
Under a centre arch, trailing a feathery
Diffraction of wave.’

~ ‘Battersea’
