Noblesse Oblige

NOBLESSE OBLIGE

I might get a Nobel
I might get run over
Contingencies abound
Best to be prepared

Nobel Prize response:
(Modesty meets truth)
“I am no more”
(Than any other)

Tombstone requiem:
(Dream meets reality)
“I am no more”
(The tenant left)

True Name

TRUE NAME

You mined me for gold
Your pick in your hand

No don’t mind me no
Ore waste your time
For my gold is mine
And mine alone

Nominal – a loan
A nom de plume
Plucked from the air
Light as morning mist

A feathery tag
Tagged – you’re it!
Thought me caught fast
Not so fast though

Not so fast as you thought
A puff of wind blew me
Up, up and away
You cry out my name

From the still sky
Not even an echo

Mysterious Manifesto

MYSTERIOUS MANIFESTO

In memoriam: Leos Janácek

A wandering madman
Mistrustful and reserved
Unrequited passion
And informal divorce

Consider this I beg
The unfinished diary
Of one who disappeared
To the house of the dead

Knock-on

KNOCK-ON

The poor children
The poor children

And their children

And could you
Turn up the heating
As you’re passing?

Backstory

BACKSTORY

She had tattoos, she said
I’d have to pay to see
But then I’m miserly
Rather squeamish besides

Gone Astray

GONE ASTRAY

Are we all not One
Black and white, male and female
Why betray Oneself?

Cool Jets Only Thank You

COOL JETS ONLY THANK YOU

A world that will not slow
To match me step by step
Is not worth living in
And so I shall recline

Nuptials Ongoing

NUPTIALS ONGOING

She’s always found right
Whereas he’s always found wrong
He’s her perfect match

He’s probably right
Whereas she’s probably wrong
But he keeps the peace

Chiselling at it
Venturing past right and wrong
They’ve found perfect peace

All Alone

ALL ALONE

Pity October
Stuck between all those embers
No one seems to care
