Pity Poor Bradford

by Louise Craven

Psychopomps in high-vis jackets
Dismantle and dismember
These stone memories
Architecture amputated
Incised

Concrete carcinoma
Spreading secondary cancers
Tendrils of despair
Infecting the streets
As Bradford atrophies.

Louise Craven: sporadic writer, serial procrastinator, sometimes published.
