Spoken amber

Roadworkers
speak
their
arcane spells

weaving

the city
in chants
that cut through
the noise
of buses,

buskers, flocks
of japanese tourists,
rob

cab-drivers´ shouts
of their power

echoes

and finally
becomes river-rocks
preserving the city´s magic
in stones
shown on slivers of beach

in the tide of the Thames.
