Crazy by Lynn White


The paving is crazy,
Rough cut pieces.
Rough cemented joints
with jagged edges.
There’s no sense to be made of it.
Such a contrast with the window’s glass.
So carefully cut and coloured.
So carefully designed.
It’s smooth joints
with curving strips of soft lead
breaking up the colours.
But even the shafts
of multi-coloured illumination
can shed no light on it,
can make no sense of it.
There’s no sense to be made.
The paving is crazy,
simply crazy.
