I sat on the quay
With hot fish and chips
city_nights_400Steaming from wrapped
Newspapers with the top
Ripped open and the seagulls
Floating overhead as the waves
Slapped the docks.

I dug my hand into
The newspaper wrapping
And fished out some vinegar
Soaked hot chips and stuffed
Them into my mouth as I gazed
Out on the grey horizon with the sounds
Of foghorns and wailing fishmongers,
And the newspaper boys rushing across
The road making their routs,
And the clip-clop of hooker
Heels prancing behind me,
And the sound of smashing
Beer bottles from the nearby
Bar across the road,
As the muffled
Saxophone drifted out
Mingling with the fog
And the stale
Beer smells.

I sat on the quay
And listened to
The moment
Unfold around me
And kept on stuffing
Hot fish and chips
Into my mouth,
Took a swig
Of beer from
A beer bottle
And wiped
My face,
As I melted
Into this urban
Symphony.
