Tours of Southbank, southern end

The bars and cafes close
as a sign it's time
to head homeward. Thus
they are in step with our urge
to eat, drink and gossip
somewhere else, not here
not where vehicle emissions
create a thirst, expensive banks
of yuccas look too good to eat
and climbing steps to glass doors
sitting inside a set box of noise
smiling seems incongruous
when sitting in a car
seriously alone
makes sense
after a day idling in front
of service desks and tills.
