From Sean Bonney.
I’ve been thinking about the riots again lately. It seems to me, sometimes, that the week in which they happened has been compressed, buried somewhere in the distant past, and we’ve all been trapped within its shell. Nothing has happened since then, nothing at all – or rather, everything that has happened has been blind scratchings at the walls of that week, on and on, hurtling further and further back in time.
Elsewhere: abandoned buildings.

we were wearing flags and pretty flowers, but our memories
at several intersections they opened into vast arched domes
of that other life, its obnoxious circles, of relics and animal love
the horrific quantity of force we will need to continue even to live
When you meet a Tory on the street, cut his throat
It will bring out the best in you.
It is as simple as music or drunken speech.
There will be flashes of obsolete light.
You will notice the weather only when it starts to die.
