On the site of a former power station in the Midlands

by poetrydiary

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.
