(The Crystal Age / Pretoria - South Africa)

Heaven On Earth

With a Walkman in the ears, the crocodile is
getting ready to return to work without tears,
creating an inner world to keep me safe from
outside noise, moving everywhere with celestial
music in my ears, Mantovani, Strauss, Chopin,
Nici transferred ten CD’s onto it, I still don’t know
how to switch it on, lessons to follow before

Typing with a delighted mind, no more fear for
going back to the office, this new technology
must be exploited, reading glasses to make
looking at documents easy, so many years
I’ve struggled not seeing very well, fixing
problems creates the feeling of
heaven on earth…
