Canary Wharf

Red caterpillars
Rumbling down the DLR
Go, round corners-stop 

Stock Exchange latest
Black-suited figures, small ants
Scurry to work. Banks. 

Grey, black, white towers
Looming over the city
Big boy’s Lego toys. 

Smooth dome arena
LondonEye, Tower Bridge
Malls
Churches, Monuments 

Cranes, new-builds, mosques, wharfs
Skyline pierced with stacks and
Spires
Stretching, touching clouds 

Planes soar high above
Londonbetween twin-towers
Crazy illusion 

Boats moored under trees
Waterways, tracks, highways
Fused
City in City.
