Put on a brave face

across the insolent finger of sooted brick

denuded to stand apart in fabricated erosion

windows blinded by time

doors obscured, erased

dizzy roofed quarters unshuttered

pierced to the elements

cleaving for the sun of other days

mickeys visit for the roosting

bustling hostel in lime spattered decline

spared from aerial munitions

strafed now by swooping wings

adamant and resolute

seas of cars ebb closer

this cloistered bastion of age

the thorn in the side

a fly in the developmental ointment

occupying space

£4.50 all day
