voices from the static

Posted in thought by juliobesq on June 28, 2008

should i ever emigrate, before i leave, i will burn compact discs filled with the recordings of chatter from mini cab controllers.

then, as i lie, wherever it is, on a hot barmy rooftop, or with the open windows carrying in the scent of exotic flora, the roll call of familiar street names can transport me back.

roads reminiscences of friends, first date cul de sacs, the avenue of a short-let flat, parks and lanes.

“ two for breaknock road…
picking up at murray street…
regular at tufnell park…
camden square, need to ring the bell…
three local…
maiden lane… ”
