Does the light go out
or is it strapped to a bed
with tubes, a regular feed
of who knows what to try next
and a dream
to talk in
Make your peace
Wait for stars

Like Sponge but Very Dark Black

A bit like sponge
but very dark black
clumps of frog spawn

You have to carefully push in
lengths of silver wire
and thread them through

It's not so much that your memory comes back
it's more that the underlying
and overarching
become clarified
this can be extremely disappointing

Art - like paintings in the d'Orsey
Art - like Asiatic carvings in the Guimet
Art - like Rodin's Garden
Art - like Eiffel Tower
Art - like the way you walk past
and smile
