Auto-Loam Street by Peter W. Slater

Two way system of impressions and embossings:
Buildings imprinting their being on bodies.
Bodies imprinting their being on buildings.

History in the street and on the walls, down the drains and
in
the
bins.
Dereliction is as lively as regeneration.

Faking ruin. Ha!

The wallpaper only masks the blood stains.
Ready to be found and recorded. Classified by the police and then the press.
Or the press and then the police. Tracings traced.
A network of pressing.
The history of the press.
The pressing of history.

Footprints during the cold snap.
Black oily chewing gum patterned like plastic brick.
Doing us a favour and never often thanked
