Sunrise over Peckham

Peckham 2016

I saw the sun rise over brick walls

Tall estate blocks

Over tough evenings and even tougher mornings to come

Over hopes and dreams

And wishes that things were different

Over morning cups of coffee

And cheerios

I saw the sun rise over construction cranes

Building luxury flats not so far away

Affordable housing or so they say

Don’t believe the lies.

I saw the pinks and blues

They go from blue to grey

Over breeze blocks and tower blocks and construction cranes
