The Devil is in the Retail
Pacified products with ambiguous pasts
Globalised, centralised, de-humanised with a 2-for-1 offer
This grey monolith, an ode to purchase power
Heading for autonomy, a cashless society
For when this finally closes, there will be nothing left to save.
But as this transpires, as it will, with transition to the next
The old will prevail, whether through graded listing or preservation
Built before our birth, but always part of our time
Standing strong and watching on.
