deans yard

sitting on some -----------------
glorious ancient wall 
in st deans yard
like a bum; I was caught off guard
--------------------------I was off duty
I was overcome
by London's dis-beauty
//////a murky dawn
a feeling of forlorn
all around 
all around
the trumpets sound
and the school boys talk about history
as the motorcyclist 
lies on a stretcher
while the paramedics and police 
scrape metal off the floor
we all saw
it, ------a mortal
---------------fall through
a portal
