Mathew Lyons – “signs & wonders”

signs & wonders

audible for a moment
the astrology of sound

how to make sense of traffic
street talk

the infinite orchestra
of weather

what the roar from a bar at evening means
the folklore of slow wifi

delays on the Circle Line
the satnav finding its north in a cul de sac

you have reached your destination
a points failure, a mythos

even a false alarm’s
a cry for help of some kind
