Rats and Tinnitus

under the platform the
 1
 
 
clicking of shoes and the

first leaves of Buddlejas brown
 3
 
 
soft bodies move searching
 4
 
 
over the gravel in yellow-grey light between
 5
 
 
heavier greys look
 6
 
 
down, London, look down past
 7
 
 
your feet before you
 8
 
 
run back to your holes look
 9
 
 
down, London, the streets aren’t so silent the rats
 10
 
 
hear your footsteps the

ringing is all in your head
 12
 
 
it appears after all
