Now that the tube map is back up...

Elephant & Castle [22]

These gallons are reaching
their limit, high-

shelving in the
circular rain.

The quays all point
one way, back

in toward the
snapped-to chain.

Tottering won’t be
here for long, if

you call that would.
More damp, more

clapping high-hat
lampreys waiting

in that three-ring cross
tell us nothing but

what’s nationally known:
pick two, pick three

and let the barker’s low-
rent dollhouse winch

in some eastern lane.
