A minaret on the skyline, silent in the haze
that unscheduled rays don’t penetrate. Songbirds
elope with its pollen to rooftop pistils.
Action and mind will bud on screen.
Too tall for shrivelling leaves to smother:
storm the Palace and there’ll be sport on.
Its signals are flares that tumble through the air
to vanish on overcoats, a trail of pawprints.
The TV Tower on Air is the first of a four part sequence by Alistair Noon entitled 'Four Structures', and Gists and Piths will be publishing it serially over the next four days.
