At Source - poem 8

The truck comes rumbling
up the street, beneath
large leafy street trees

and turns language
on its head, wheelie
after wheelie.

Here we see
the recycling of
commercial language,

comics, homework,
cryptic crosswords,
poetry drafts, abandoned

short stories,
daily news (local,
national, international)

sports news,
war news, pre-
scriptions, TV

programs,
medicine packets -
all together now

in a dump truck
off to Oxford for
the Dons' assessment.
