Architecture, Buildings, Poetry

in response to the prompt



a little like a hermit crab or cuckoo

the new build hides behind remains of the old

modernity concealed behind antiquity

cornices and gargoyles given a clean up

what lies behind the old place now?

its anybody’s guess

no signs of the buildings old use

beyond the front door

    1. Cheers for reading. This was inspired by the old employment service building on the main road which has since undergone a little development…int posh flats for the executives working on the waterside in Salford…internally they’re modern boxes, but they’ve kept the old fascia of the original building.
