Bara Cailín 2: 6 ‘The Weeds of Priory Hall’

Cities normally return to nature after desertion.

Sand can cover office blocks. Shopping centres fall in on themselves.

Civic buildings lose all semblance of significance. Sewers clog and silt.

Vehicles return their elements to the earth. Or house new tenants.

Fountains fall silent.

Slowly, troublingly, desperately, inexorably the weeds of Priory Hall exerted their cosmic influence on the city.
