No radios, no smoking, no chatter
of jackdaws, no retaining walls,
no buddleia, no pipe lines,

no car tyres, no security lights,
no birch trees, no stars
of shattered glass,

no pallets, no winches,
no weathervanes, no hinges,
no rivets, no locked gates,

no rusted chains, no pigeons,
no peeling paint, no traffic cones,
no overflow, no forget-me-nots,

no pot holes, no boiler suits,
no orange vests, no start line,
no finish, no chequered flag.
