Rookie - 520 Points (JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)

Out Of Skin...


The back of the T.V.
absorbs the red and
yellow curtain colour,

and I can see all
of it from behind,

in fact
there is something
near the edge
of the stage everywhere,

you walk on

and then off

**** I always wanted
to be something like
Rimbaud,

a creator of something,
yet unheard of...

but for all the things
I've read,
I still can't find the urge,

as the roller coaster
flips
over
like a
beautiful female body,

wow - stops in mid air,

you can study live film
on a crowd of human eyes,

as the heart of time
jumps a beat,

in seconds a hundred
human feet start going
again,

you stop....where?

wherever...

the diamonds at Rox
shrink in their little sox.

whenever I stoop,

I make silver - happen,
didn't you observe,
the glow right there,

right now?

why wouldn't it dim,
when you can move,
have anything at your
command,

ah! resplendently,

all it's takes
is a millisecond,

and we're all on
our knees,

sobbing all over
the secret seams...

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
