Box City

I went to London
Big Ben in the Houses of Parliament

and saw, inside this city of boxes,

London Cityscape

 a city-in-a-box,
Imaginary City by Alexander Brodsky and Ilya Utkin at Tate Modern

and then the remnants of another

Trading seals from the Indus at the British Museum

 unimaginably old.

Fertility statues from the Ancient Indus at the British Museum

And here, I came across another  box

Remaining tower of Christchurch Greyfriars designed by Christopher Wren 1677

blown open

Remains of the nave of Christchurch Greyfriars - bombed in world War 2

with plants instead of pillars

Garden of Christchurch Greyfriars

and inside another box

Lift from Selfridge's store now in City of London Museum

a box embossed - to deify Retail.

Queenhithe - last remaining Anglo-Saxon dock on the Thames in the city of London

A feckless god, that one, subject to whims

View from Queenhithe to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the Tate Modern

and the vagaries of the tide.
