Playground By Les Merton

a single chain swing hangs,
           half of a seesaw is anchored
                        the side is booby trapped.
graffiti sprays
           walls of shelters littered
                       with cans, bottles, syringes.
within trembling silence,
          the sun glances from cover,
                      a skipping song whispers.
