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.
