Introducing the Stranger – Mark Redford


~~~ “O” ~~~

              the Stranger
from out of the moody towers
      of Manhattan that recess
and reach higher for to fill the sky
                                          because it’s there
ever walks the stranger a metre
above ground the true emergence
      from grey building crowd and truck
fine contrast in lime shirt and tie
      to which all the ingenuity
and desperate colour of humanity has
     no response

~~~ “O” ~~~
