 (‘I can’t go on….. I’ll go on.’  Samuel Beckett)

We lie in crazy poses

Above the muddied waters

Sweet Thames swirling

Superman…. Falling man…

And she, hair spread on glass

Waving, not drowning

Joy defying her Oedipal fate;

Drug infused veins fight the shadows

Thrilling above the bascule jaws

Smoothly inviting the crowded ship to pass

Seawards

Sing sweetly while I live…. I live
