UK: Langworthy

Salford, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

Fog wraps round chimneys
stacked in brown brick,
settles on satellite dishes.
 
Apparitional smog
irritates the eyes,
disturbs the intake of breath.
 
Salford bleached by rain –
a wet wind blows
through a line of washing.
 
Plump, two pigeons
perch on a fence
as humans flock to the new Tesco.
 
Fog frost, the smell of petrol,
the peaks of Quayside apartments
vanish in the aerial grey mist.
