Neubooterdammerung, 10: Nick Allen

the future manifests as three dead whales at Skegness

who read the runes so wrong   what manner
of malfunction   how far out of kilter
were the magnets to leave us stranded   landed

like a bad bet   a thing beyond repair
this no through road   this blunt dead end
so recently smoke and promises

now a suppurating mass to be covered
over   left to rot on this recalcitrant land
walk away   the stench is overwhelming
