you're gone then
and before you went seven sibling others:
seven others that shared the same dna
and the same name
when space was tight in meadowbank well,
the same bed too
because you were the last of that time
and this morning,
you were the last to bow out of that eightsome reel:
the last bud on the branch then of that particular (and delightfully peculiar)
with your stone mason's attention to detail
passed down from your father to his son
and your love of the pun
i for one thought you were kind
i never saw you raise a hand except
off ye go then ronnie,
with your wee bandy legs and your quick mind:
your welcoming ways left behind
with your daughter,
who will be alright of course.
in due course.

we share each other like an island
until exhausted close our eyelids

It's road safety week in Q8.
As a concession to this initiative, children/interactive airbags are moved out of harm's way from the lap of the driver to the parcel shelf, where they can stretch out and get a proper kip...
plus ca change
Mood: deja vu

No man should go through life without once experiencing healthy, even bored solitude in the wilderness, finding himself depending solely on himself and thereby learning his true and hidden strength.
