In her eyes, centuries are
Hair as black and straight as lonely streets are
Look into her eyes
Look into her eyes
Have you ever been there

You wander lost along the sea shore
Ask the reason why
All the villains always live
And all the heroes always die

She dissolves your words in acid
Nothing is the same
First she throws away the rules
Then she throws away the game

She says she's not immune to knowledge
She's not afraid of clouds
Then you wander hand in hand
Among imaginary crowds

There's nothing you can do about it
Nothing you can change
Seems like only yesterday
Lost inside a picture frame

Poem 14 of 230: NIGHT OR DAY?!

In the far north of Sweden,
    A "Land of the Midnight Sun,"
A strange thing chanced upon me -
    And I'll tell you, just for fun.

I spent the afternoon sightseeing,
    Then, after a latish dinner,
Returned to my own small bedroom -
    The comfy bed proving a winner.

For I soon dozed into dreamy sleep -
    Waking what was just two hours hence;
But my watch was an analogue,
    And night or day I couldn't sense!

I quickly packed all my things
    (My train an hour or thirteen on)
And hurried out the bedroom -
    The bright sky a sneaky con.

I wandered down the track a bit
    (The Hostel office empty),
Before a smiling helpful local
    Did kindly enlighten me.

There was a Persian king
Who wanted to know
What he could say on
Every occasion
That always would be so

      Illusions, circles and changes
      Illusions, always changing
      Like the wind and the rain

He summoned three wise men
From his eternal throne
One from each border
Gave them his order
To write words always true

The wise men thought so hard
For a night and day
Found these words to say on
Every occasion
These things too shall pass away

    For children's sakes, let's fashion back to One Lover:
In public-life there are - guess what - women and men;

The man in the tree is staring at me
All of the blood dripping down
He says: where are you bound?
Said: I'm going to town to pawn my crown
And never come back here again

My lady in waiting is weaving a robe
Of silk and moonlight and now
And she never asks how
So pleasant a task she never asks
And she only listens to friends

The man at the store he looks at my crown
Listens to my sad tale
He says it never fails
If the crown is for sale, I'll give you some nails
But you can only use them on friends

The man in the tree was staring at me
As I passed by again on that day
He said I'd got in his way
Said: nails aren't the way to be free to stay
So I traded them all for the end
Went back to my lady in waiting and all of her friends

THE WEEKLY WALKABOUT, E.G.

Poem 195 of 230: MUSING ON WIMBLEDON - SUMMER 2002

2001 got somewhat cheeky,
    So, on my T.V., I was pleased to see
Old-fashioned etiquette about the net...
    But oh! to get among the coaching set.

Thus, here is a feature that I'd teach:
    Two-hands each side – either off when can't reach.
And, as for thoughts on pay, I do not say
    "Amateur play" but "spread-out the outlay."

Yes, Amos, but it's so much more fun misinterpreting what you say and pretending to get upset about it.

Ah, well.

I suspect I would not be able to keep up with Winona for long. Matter of fact, I'm sure of it. Thus I am envisioning a strictly part time and friendly relationship based on mutual freedom that would not tie down or restrict either participant or demand any type of exclusive committments, if you follow me.

Anyway, she smokes, and I can't take a whole lot of that. I don't care how attractive the other person is.

Actually, Hawk, I was merely pointing out that you are not young, you are not untried (my god--the number of times you've tried!), and you are certainly are not fresh; more like a mackerel, twinkling in the moonlight, on the back lawn of civilization.

There was a course once in diagramming sentences and working out which part modified what, which you must have missed. Perhaps you were absent that particular day after day after day. Otherwise, my meaning woudl have been clear.
