20th March 2018

Goethe's Faust
we view the ink-stained desk
it was written upon.
His house in Frankfurt.
Bombed during the way
painstakingly rebuilt
furniture safe in storage.
We think of Coventry
as a city bombed to shreds
but the allies did the same
a whole town shredded
with the single exception
of the cathedral tower.
