On Listening to Epic45 Travelling North

by Andrew Taylor

Tunnels differ out there
radio masts listen
for imminent threat

brickwork darkened through
years of northbound traffic

Birds gather on electricity
cables it’s heading towards
that time of night

the copse is settling down
the harvester has done its work

shorn and given over an active
continuity bales stacked in semi-
derelict barns green signal
on branch line            shines
