Vivid picture
painted with words
a city's soul

Empty sandwich board.
The man with the tattooed face
wolfs down his supper.

Wow - this is becoming a trend! Thank you both.

Very atmospheric, wintry city evenings,mmm.
Do you know the French expression 'faire le poireau'? It means to be kept waiting. standing around by someone, fruitlessly and feeling rather foolish,like your leeks standing to attention!

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
