Pea Soup

image

The river today stagnates,
and the air around it is pillow-thick
and heavy like soup;

…the kind that comes in off the sea as mist
and swallows you
(and everything else that surrounds you)
up.

Juxtaposed

Underneath, the river snakes by in silence –
happy, tranquil;
peaceful and undisturbed.

Above, a dustcart grumbles –
mute on plastic, paper,
glass and gum.
