Lucent Dreaming
Grey by Nicola Maclean (Lucent Dreaming Issue 5)

There is nothing interesting here. Grey stone, grey metal, grey hair and the vicious. Brutalism birthed this fountain, and Modernism birthed Mondrian who left his mark on the erupting clock tower. A corral of pound shops glare through glaucoma windows, their shutters blink shut in grey light. Grey centre of a grey town.
