for it to contain 'all you are to me'


another filled with'needing you'

She never fails

The amazing animal she was

Its ghost shall endure eternal imprisonment

stay a prisoner of my heart.

under loves thumb

why does she put me

      on an equal footing with the crowd?

   her love may be balanced

   but it unbalances me

it is burdening


         It is becoming a love I hate

 to love.

             but is it right for me to be without it?

       I,m like Charles Atlas,

a 60,s reminisce

that look once was in my eyes

an undisguised wildness

in unkempt state,beard, bedraggled hair

feeling debonair nevertheless.


bounding along shouldering my tattered gear

devil may care attitude

take me or leave me

going my own way


a life of ambling ease

tramping the lengths and breadths

needing only a thumb

N.J. and all that

reports are coming in

that whist attending a Dallas murder scene

a police officer spotted a dyed blonde hair

on the window sill of a book depository

which she sent to forensics lab.

unfortunately it was later mislaid.

in addition to this the officer also reported-

a black mercedes passing at speed

followed by a white fiat

bearing the number plate L I Z-MI6
