LONDON

Night in a city that has licked its wounds
Two thousand years. And curls around its kits
Feeding and grooming heroes cowards wits
Lovers and killers. Always quiet sounds
As traffic purrs dim cat lights in the street.
Windows are dark in darkness curtains drawn
So many million. City I was born
In your warm heart my first breath to its beat
And hope to die according to your laws
Breathing your scented passioned poison air
Surrounds me chokes me black dust in my hair
I drink dark milk protected by your claws
Gog Magog Bran and dragons in the stone
You gave me all the words I write breathe own.

elisi: (Doctor (Not Human) by renestarko)

The idea for this first came to me back in early March (the 3rd to be precise), after watching The Lazarus Experiment wherein the Doctor and Lazarus quote 'The Hollow Men' by T. S. Eliot. I sat down to read it, and was completely and utterly blown away. This was the result, because that poem is the Tenth Doctor. (To create this I ended up reading Heart of Darkness and Dante and sort-of learned how to use a proper graphics programme. Hence the long time coming.)

So without further ado I shall let you see for yourselves. Lengthy meta-heavy notes at the end explaining all my choices/thoughts. This is, I think, THE Tenth Doctor meta I always wanted to write and never knew how. (Should have suspected it'd all come down to Eliot...)

Seven Stanzas at Easter
John Updike

Make no mistake: if He rose at all

it was as His body;

if the cells’ dissolution did not reverse, the molecules

reknit, the amino acids rekindle,

the Church will fall
