Signing in and out

Bermondsey,
the new Bermuda triangle,
Battersea too
and Bromley By Bow
what I want to know is why?

Things disappear all the time
like people,
some friends of mine
were people and
they disappeared,

somewhere between
Mile End and the West End
they vanished,

buildings as well
they disappear just the same,
even streets do and then
one day they turn up with a
different name and you don’t know
them at all.

Perhaps we’re at the edge of a black hole
and it’s sucking us all in
changing the concept of where things begin
and more importantly
where they disappear to in the end.
