The Night City

"Midnight. I hear the moon

Light chiming on St Paul's.

 

The City is empty. Night

Watchmen are drinking their tea.

 

The Fire had burnt out.

The Plague's pits had closed

And gone into literature.

 

Between the big buildings

I sat like a flea crouched

In the stopped works of a watch."
