It's such a pain when you lose a poem on the motorway.
Near Leicester, as I recall.
And it was such a good opening -
Such a line
Full of simple power - lyric heart and
Earth and you...
But now not here
Now no more.
Like friend who died with sunken eyes
I could then just see
3 weeks ago:
A curious distance from death.
The day after I could still see him,
And in 5 years time I will again
But 3 weeks?
