UK: Manchester, Midnight

vortex manchester

A fat moon hangs suspended over Piccadilly
and the double-decker buses come and go,
bound for Bolton, Trafford, Wigan.
 
The stars are out tonight over Salford
and a shadowy cat traverses the alleys,
green eyes rubbing the dustbins.
 
A fat moon hangs suspended over Prestwich
and a ethereal fox examines the remains
of somebody’s discarded takeaway.
 
The stars are out tonight over Bury
and a gaggle of girls head for the tram
that will propel them back to Piccadilly
 
where a full fat moon hangs suspended
like a huge bauble.
