Urban wildlife

Laying back in the sunshine
Counting the jets overhead
As they soar across the sky
Giant birds of the metropolis.

Beyond the trees a siren calls
Traffic roars along the road
And a train snakes its way past
Fellow creatures of the city.

Written in Memorial Park West Ham during the Summer Together! 2016 August residency.
