Lyra knew the two worlds, of course.
Jericho’s synagogue and the Lebanese eyeing each other from under different stars
In Town, the grey-boxed public library sharing few traits with Bodley’s place.
Kennington’s Hungry Horse, 800 yards
– and a million miles –
from the Isis Farmhouse café,
And the curt road bridge’s blurred load dissecting the Thames like a gash on a college scarf.
