‘Leeds welcomes you' in flowers
Garlanding the white stuccoed tower
Of City Station: red on green
As poetry's demon seizes me,
Upending all ordures of order.
‘Haworth Moor, Haworth Moor'
Echoes and re-echoes under the Dark Arches
Where the Aire gurgles and swirls
In eddies of Jack the Ripper, cloud-hopping
