Grenfell Tower

                           only in the West

 

                           the sun returned

                           bringing angled shadows

                           of morning

                           back to city streets.

 

                           cars and buses,

                           trains and tubes

                           moved people

                           from home to work.

 

                           only, in the west

                           a pall of smoke

                           hung heavy

                           on the skyline

 

                           and the people wept.
