Coastal sand, strangely, bearing seeds
and brought by those who came to power,
years ago, this town, from here
(I’m sure they knew exactly why.)
Coastal sand remains, today;
the only sign, except a board,
behind Tesco, ‘on the site of a former power station,
its seed bank creating a unique habitat,’
by the river and far from the sea,
‘for solitary wasps,’ it says (and poets).
I bet they did not plan for that.
