Plastic & Steel

I wear regret
Like an ancient
Ruffled coat
in the bitter breeze,
To the sound of
Foghorns and bells.

plastic01_400The crumpled cans
And scattered shells,
The bombshells
Among the poppies
Blowing in the wind.

I can hear the echo
Of their voices still,
On factory floors
Among the
Dust and
Broken doors.

I wear regret
Like an ancient
Ruffled coat
In the bitter breeze,
To the sound of
Foghorns and bells.

I can hear the echo
Of their voices still,
In the hollow days
Wailing the blues
Their battered shoes
Shuffling down 
Rusted city beats,
The empty streets.

The beautiful
And the damned
In the days of
Plastic and steel,
Glinting in shards
Of broken glass,
Among the reeds
And overgrown
Green grass.

I wear regret
Like an ancient
Ruffled coat
in the bitter breeze,
To the sound of
Foghorns and bells;
The metallic factory
Carcass decaying
Under the orange sun,
In the days of plastic
And steel.
