London, make your mark on me
Engrave your river, brown like a snake
Upon my arm. Imprint your galleries,
Your collections of history and art
With golden paint above my heart.
Emboss your cobbled streets,
Wet with rain, into the soles of
My feet. London, make your mark
On me. Tattoo your hustle bustle
Of people, cars and pigeons
In a swirl of foreign ink across my
My cheek. London, become a part of me.
