This House

National Theatre
28 February

The moon-faced clock
above counts in
and out, as they,
cling to the edge.

Forward and back
they go, one man
one vote, alive
or hanging
by a thread;

until the pulse
of Westminster
is silenced,
and their breath
hangs in the balance.

This House runs at the National Theatre until 15 May
