LIKE A CAMEL

fell

from grace

was soaring like a Sukhoi

but dipped and

dropped to Earth like

a bat-

winged duck

designed by

Leonardo Da Vinci

yes, I think I told you

I’m a Renaissance man,

totally lapsed Anglo-

Catholic hybrid

went to university and

fell in with

a bad crowd: Ezra Pound,

TS Eliot, Roland

Barthes, JM

Coetzee and

Nietzsche

and so I wander like

poor man’s Hamlet

whose beautiful

Ophelia

has daddy-gangster issues

and who had to

say farewell to

Elsinore since

could not

pay the rent
