Portobello Rd

I could shop here for a thousand years
to not look as fierce as these ladies
in sequined vests and cigarette holders
on Portobello Road.
The eccentrics are setting up stalls
the heels of their cowboy boots
loud upon the cobbles as wagonwheels
(why are there so many cowboy boots in London?)
they wear tweed flat caps
over their blue and silver hair or the odd
remnants of mohawks with receding hairlines.
