Rush hour, remembrance week

The cortege of boxy cars
White eyes misted through spray
Remembrance Week:
Where once this month
barely mourned the season's passing
Shocked us awake
Sudden flinty sharp dawns
Lawn hard as a parade ground
Now it sags beneath itself
Tubby clouds spill from seams
And bleed above the soil
