the cities bones jut

Look at this image – look at the remnants of a previous time, a time that is ending and decaying and being ripped out of our civilisation, as if it never mattered in the first place. What wonders did these buildings know? What horrors? What of the people who built them? and conversely those who are dismantling them? Are there secrets here to be uncovered? What will be instead?

Take 30 to 45 minutes to write down everything that occurs to you about this scene, even if you just start of describing the images itself – keep writing.

Put the writing away for 6 months and then revisit it, you may find the bones of a poem or two lurking in there!
