Poems for the moment #1

Sunderland Library, 27th June 2012

In Keane we Trust in the Sound and Vision
On sale for £12 in 2012;
Efficiencies, layout changes,
No separate short-story section;
From comfy Blair blandness
To Coalition disorientation:
Exercise machines by the reading desks,
Just for the Olympics or is this a

Permanent move? Diversification;
Intangible loss, the traces erased.
‘CUSTOMER NOTICE’ about ‘quiet study’:
Citizens reduced; served, rephrased.
