Stars in the carpet


(Bronte space thoughts 2012)


Vacuuming stars at midnight
From a grubby seaside carpet

Nick Drake background hums
My seventies London soundtrack

Feel sixteen at sixty-one
Rushing fast to sixty-five

Single bed room
Sanctuary and prison

Full creative life
Empty of passion

Put away childish things
Time to be a proper man

Right.
