I fell in love with music again today,
so hard when life gets in the way.
My dedication was no sacrifice
I took my own advice
sat down to let it flow
down from that upper region
to the hands that know
where age suddenly falls away
and I fell in love with music again today.

The astrophysicist climbs onto the bike
he inherited from his father,
moves off in obedience to certain laws,
pondering on the longevity of the tyres
also inherited, along with a parsimony
based on the principles of conservation
observable in all matter.
The tyres need changing
but being a reluctant optimist
he reserves himself for more cosmic considerations

i've a mind to give it up
while i'm ahead,
but i'm not though
and I need the solace
it might afford,
the gravestone inscriptions,
prescriptions for a better time.
I've reached that clearing before
where the air is fresh,
where the tiniest of life forms find freedom
apart from us.
So poetry, even though it makes such a fuss
I can't give...
