The Angel of the North
A poet named this new colossus.
The service station told me, 'You can't miss it.'

The traffic slowed, we all crept past it,
My eye only partially aligning the car,
Partially taking cognizance of the movement
Of this significant being's massive wings,
And as I went on into Newcastle
