In the tube

Only a flicker
Over the strained time-ridden faces
Distracted from distraction by distraction...

Eructation of unhealthy souls
Into the faded air, the torpid
Driven on the wind that sweeps the gloomy hills of London,
Hampstead and Clerkenwell, Campden and Putney,
Highgate, Primrose and Ludgate.
