Cheap lace

Chatty old women

In old cider places

Under chestnut and oak

Gnarled as

Gold-encrusted hands

Multi-coloured

Snot-nosed kids

Graffiti

Freshly painted

Walls

For identity

Brisk bankers

Dance around the

Golden calf

Worship

Multi storey office buildings

Eroticism of

Phallus probing

Smog-hazy skies

Silver birds

Criss-cross

This self-made

Metropolis

This blabber-mouthed boom box

Blaring music from Babylon

Sodom and Gomorrah

Rackety

Cheeky

Dirt cheap

Benevolence

Her spicy smell of

Petrol Money Sex

Permeates

My hair
