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
tomorrow

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…

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
