On bikes flowing freely
down Royal College Street.
St Pancras Old Church.
Flashing forwards.
A frequent passing.
Once there were arches:
The American Car Wash.
A carpenter selling
small furniture.
All buried beneath
high speed rail.
But Hope can be found
on Midland Road.
Spelt out large,
nearly fifty feet high.
A sibling to those
at Gospel Oak,
York Way and
Kentish Town Road.
Graffiti soaring.
spreading balm
to all the abandoned.
The souls who travel
by day and by night.
