Spaghetti Junction Series

(There are seven pages in this scoll)

An enormous medieval motorway cathedral crypt

Streetlights glow and hang, globes in the blue night sky

Their orange-yellow sodium light soaking into concrete structures

The bowels of the city

Towering, tangled guts

Distant rumbles of invisible effluents

On their anonymous metropolitan journeys.

 

A Little Story: Arrested Under the Prevention of Terrorism Act

While sketching for these prints at night beneath Spaghetti Junction I was arrested by the police under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. They questioned me for several hours at the local police station and finally released me when I took them home and showed them my prints. I invited the detective inspector to my show but he didn't come.
