L is for Light, noun of agency that reveals all objects. Light on upper reaches of cloud, sheen of windows, over February leaves. Passengers alight, their hair combed and clean, at window height. Fine detail of fingers at opened book, special colours. Then it’s back to reading. M is for Mammon, word of awe. When Welby talks of “dethroning Mammon” is it just money? Wyclif translates Mammon riches. That’s good! Riches means wealth, but more, any possessions we might worship as a god. We see them laid out, a city of objects people could kill for, our game of thrones.
