Bishops in a row

Hereford cathedral

An early production line prototype
bishops in a row
cast in stone
at a bus stop
awaiting the trump.
Daily footfalls
the prayers they hear
in their silence
and the genuflection
of eyes
the obeisance
of pilgrim visitors.
What do they care
in the sleep
of eternity
with the dust
of centuries
in their unseeing eyes ?
