From "Lines out of Space"


after the disaster, laughter

dear aunt
we are still here waiting for the disaster
to come
it will define us
teach us what it means to be important enough
sing: (there’s no one quite like grandad)
last night I dreamt
we emerged from darkness profundity and lies
dreamt that we loved each other well
and that everyone we knew was as scintillating
song: (meet the gang ‘cos the gang’s all here)
when it comes, and it will
we are determined not to be ready for it we
live in a state of permanent unpreparedness and
just when we have given up we
feel that it will hit us them
something awful before that something great
(until then we will be just good friends…)
the complex joy of being a part of greatness
until then we remain
your loving strangers
x and y
(close to the wistful theme tune of successful TV series Taxi)
do be doo, do do do do do doo doo doo, do be do do be doo
