Crystal flakes near
Drops of liquid steel
Dripping like dragon dribble.
Hammers pound, curving and shaping steel into chains
Dragging away the iceberg.
A cube cauterised by the heat of industry.
A vacuum (cleaner).
And a grey town
Pounding, pounding, pounding
Waves wash the bow.
Glass shards puncture steel plate.
Still steel still stolid.
Getting there, after a while.
Moving to india.
A call centre in Deli
A sweat stained sweatshop
Brown hands working on Armani.
Needle-stab, pin prick.
Present obscured by visions of the past
Flat-caps hide flat heads.
Steel plated shoes clatter on cobbled streets back in the days
When a faggot was something you ate.
Once-Working class now on benefits
Tapping initials on mobile phones
Money payed through pin-numbers
A silicon chip in a Mexican arm.
A million cameras watch
The European dream.
Could inspire cold shudders
Down the spine.
A chain attached to an iceberg
(Fluoride soaked, intellectually stunted).
