Who wrote that book Crap Towns in England?

Diced up some leaves, checkered in some black around the window panes in the tree. Added some minced road to the sky as cloud cover, cobble stone. SUV, backing up, down the drive, the red Suburban rear end—and barely that to boot! Anything but that! Sky (not) blue! Why’s that? Why that’s not nice to see! For Christ’s sake. Take it from your gifted seer (only from books), a form of escape, from your page in an open book, from the darkened interior of a desolate suburban room. Upstairs, down the hall, at the end. Let’s all back up a bit. This ain’t what I thought it was.
