(SHIPPED OUT

GLASGOW)

Fifty yards from flat Clyde
a hyper squirrel darts
between a parked black cortege
of City Council refuse bins.
Through river air, aviaries ring
as last reverberations die
from the Christ Apostolic Church,
and then, at mid-day, nothing stirs.
Shipyard cranes are pincers
of a pink crab turned turtle.
Construction cranes in mid-salute
are abandoned by their army.
Some vessel must have screwed away
today, cleared the quayside,
left us wasted in its wash,
shipped out of serotonin.
