Everybody has one –
a friend whose life planet tilted
more summer, less winter
lottery luck –
rehearsal is over. Cinderella has the part – permanently.
Nothing will change,
Footmen and maids welcome, always – never forgotten.
For Stephen the past was inconvenient
inconveniently inhabited by almost bohemians
not losers, but …..
station wanted to abandon – jettison.
Loyalty had disquiet
eviction too brutal.
Compromise has an idea
phone calls accepted : messages unreturned
the diary willing, but the pencil preemptive
for that day,
It formed slowly – it took six months
after two years he sighed to an acquaintance, I never call him.
