My latest poem

Consume

Rain sat upon the city smothering sound 
While casting its shadow over the landscape
An oppressive thing bloated and eldritch
It passed judgement, attempted to wash
Away the marks of man.

At times it sat quiescent on the hills
Its gaze observed – The constant hum of 
Tangibility clashed with a distant 
Barking while the city beat
Its feeble carrion heart.

Consumed greenery like some obnoxious 
Cancer, red brick, coal stacks and etched granite;
Topped by verdigris competed with natures natural greens
My vision faded as the fog beast settled,
Encompassed me in its wet embrace.

Amos Greig
