The Warehouse

stairwell Docklands Warehouse 1988  (c) Cat Catalyst

Restrained within seasoned brick

Silence rings of voices past

A recent age is lost already

A forgotten era now becomes

The sweat of men’s fatigue wracked bodies

And the tooth-yellowed smiles

Of stubbled chins

Sombre and alone

It survives them all

A relic for the toils of mortal men
