I like that morning
is a verb – everything doing and being,
hiving at the tangled docking stations of perhaps-
a hypothetical, taglog Tense,
the multitasking buzzibees, North Circular –
overloading zero hours, burned-out yellow jackets
I like that evening
is a verb – everything being and doing,
equalising current before the switches dim-
a liminal, late-adopting Now,
like powering off
the parakeeting spycambirds of Walthamstow-
flashmobbing green of ringtones, dark 5Ged canopy.
