Do I look like I’m looking at the floor at the skirting boards? Do I look dusted as a figurine is, over cared for or neglected for it depends on things and how you treat them as to the value spic and span can tax you? You look dusty, actually: although the words of Byron’s children spring on to “I’ll be your mirror” if that’s what you are then am I dimmed by your dirt or do you reflect a state? On my side of the mirror dream time is a fine line full of washing and plants creeping while I die.

The children that I’m teaching are really teaching me to curb the over-reaching that has caught me to be free.

When effort could go anywhere we ask the siren-bearing law men and super stars to tell us when to line up dial with light so the heat won’t come on at midnight or the street-fight begin when I write.
