How lucky have I been ?
– And don’t I need to remind myself, today ? –
Of the times I rocked out loud with the Beast,
The quiet times with the trainer;
Bubbles of blue rock
Up my nose
Like street-cheap champagne …
How we discovered ourselves –
Jesters, peasants and monarchy –
Defined our limits;
Then with riotous intelligence
Destroyed and defied them;
Then when we danced those early
Hurry-up-and-wait times together.
