.... go down the road to nowhere
and plant a sign at somewhere....
Those tears to me are imitation pearl,
glass baubles manufactured on demand.
Extract from 'Mission Impossible' :
I want a poem to be like a church bell
drowning out the devil’s yell.
I want fireworks, a pyrotechnic wonder,
an inspiration not just empty thunder,
a no-speed-limit never-ending superhighway,
a candle to light this ever-darkening day.
