The Press

When it’s in motion its
deafening clatter will
mesmerise you if you
stand still and listen; but
when it is silent
the great room seems to sigh.

And in the yard the vans prepare
to course through a city’s anatomy,
deliver to every capillary
nutritional gossip and rumours of wars.


Note: Benefits from being read aloud, or heard in the head.

    Thanks for the welcome, Carol. I am, indeed, a newbie (been here about a week) and found some of the work interesting.

    So glad. Nice to get feedback. Thanks for your kind comments, Mandy. This was one I did in the seventies when I worked for an evening newspaper in the English Midlands.
