Heygate Estate

What is that sound high in the air

Tim Tinker's Heygate Estate, Deacon Way, Elephant & Castle, Southwark, SE17

Murmur of maternal lamentation

Tim Tinker's Heygate Estate, Deacon Way, Elephant & Castle, Southwark, SE17

Who are those hooded hordes swarming

Tim Tinker's Heygate Estate, Deacon Way, Elephant & Castle, Southwark, SE17

Over endless plains, stumbling in cracked earth

Tim Tinker's Heygate Estate, Deacon Way, Elephant & Castle, Southwark, SE17

Ringed by the flat horizon only

Tim Tinker's Heygate Estate, Deacon Way, Elephant & Castle, Southwark, SE17

What is the city over the mountains

Tim Tinker's Heygate Estate, Deacon Way, Elephant & Castle, Southwark, SE17

Cracks and reforms and bursts in the violet air

Tim Tinker's Heygate Estate, Deacon Way, Elephant & Castle, Southwark, SE17

Falling towers

Tim Tinker's Heygate Estate, Deacon Way, Elephant & Castle, Southwark, SE17

From TS Eliot’s The Waste Land – V What the Thunder Said (1922)
