The Road to Gentrification

(Written after a conversation with a long-term resident of Stokes Croft, Bristol)



Banksy’s been

and sprayed the wall

with invective and wry

situationist drag


and pheromones

that attract the middle

classes who feel edgy

because they brunch


while instagramming

their smashed avocado

and poached eggs on rye

to their kids in Thailand


who are on a gap year.
