Contributor Series 10: Silken Rags

London, A Night Out: The Underground
By Fischer Lawrence

They were so tastefully dressed
  So artfully obsessed
  And their clearance

Made the distance seem more.

Stepping into the Underground
  The wind ripped
  Their sight right from my eyes

There was no pause to consider.

An act of God
  The insurance would say
  But it was clear to me

That they were dressed to kill.



Fischer Lawrence’s poem The Mating of the Cooper’s Hawk appeared here in January 2011.
