Visionary works edged in a haze
I can all too readily relate to.
I think of the near collisions
of your life with mine
the labyrinthine possibilities
never explored, the fact that
put us in any two squares of a chessboard
and we would recognise each other
But the world outside is so big and bad
it is selfish to obsess on the very small
so let the Technicolor wide-screen of dreams
collapse in on itself to a mobile phone
that one day I can carelessly lose.
