The Wash

It will all come out in the wash, they say
in the great, grand wash of Time
with the spin cycle of our good Earth each day
and the soak and the suck of the tide
And every disruptive distraction
will disperse to much less than it seems
as everything currently consuming us
dissolves like yesterday's dreams

Looking back at Cambridge

I call the St John's college architecture splendid but somewhat excessive

as is that of King's College

but there is something wonderfully spooky about Trinity Lane

while the university library is somewhat brutalist

The view from the Graduate Centre is very fine

And the garden of Darwin College, my home, was wonderful

While on the outskirts, scientific modernity rises for research and medicine

then I dip down across the Tay to hit Dundee, gently enough
