Hotel Breakfast

a hubbub,

smooth hum,

in a ballroom

- yum, yum!

Across these tables


told, retold,

revise and hurry.

And, if I listen to

fifty different voices go

loudly out - in time and space

from each their separate place,

I - (just) - can sense:

I am.

Two corners, some teeth,

a radiance, a reach,

a mouth on the up

by jowls and lips.

Cherry red cheeks,

a heart in a leap,

eyes - diamond – inflate

‘Connect to my fate!’

and yet I’ve seen another kind of smile

- the one that turns (not outside) but inside

reflecting light onto an inner man

as if a hidden furnace needs a stoke

by elements rotating as a fan

that airs an inner joy – maybe – (a soul).

and backwards, I enter the void

before my final mystery

I took a last breath,

I laid in a bed;

wheeled into a theatre

I fell in the street

After finishing work

and had a few kids.

then I earned a few bob

where I toiled like a sod

and got a promotion

then I started a job

and I married a girl

I passed my exams.

The rest is history.
