Culross Buildings 1892

 

 

 

 

 


                    

 
Culross Buildings, August 2004wrought iron balustrades
curve like birds’ wings
on communal stairs
coloured bricks
pattern the walls

carefully crafted
industrial art

Evening over King's Cross, August 2004Knock it down
put up shops
business blocks
cafes for the
internet.

Old tenement
standing in the way
of shopping malls.
Blossom, April 2000 
Crush the bricks
melt the iron,
but save perhaps
those granite setts.

Wrought iron balustrades
curve like birds’ wings
on communal stairs
Culross window, May 1998coloured bricks
pattern the walls.

It has to go.

Crush the bricks,
melt the iron,
but yes, we’ll save
those granite setts.

Angela Inglis, 2005
