Nothing/No one – Act II.


I have forgotten again
The weeks now past
My weakness now passed
Memory amended
Personality disorder rebranded

I had the bullets in my head
Ready to fire
One for each line
Perhaps they shot away
While I slept

Or rolled to the gutter
While I strode the paving slabs
Towards work
They are now gone away
Regardless of how much I need them

I carry an empty gun
Without even a flower to block the barrel
My internal dialogue is a song about a
Song
I have forgotten

And the external monologue rings
In my ears but then
Everything rings in my ears nowadays
The lines get longer and state less
It is all steam escaping
From a boiling saucepan

A spider sways above me and curses my name for disturbing his
Sleep.

Goodbye REM

“A wise man once said – ‘the skill in attending a party is knowing when it's time to leave.’ We built something extraordinary together. We did this thing. And now we're going to walk away from it … I hope our fans realize this wasn't an easy decision; but all things must end, and we wanted to do it right, to do it our way.”



This band were quite literally the soundtrack to a really important part of my life. Fronted by one of the people who I respect most as a writer and artist, and who still inspires me to keep writing.

So your wife goes to drink cocktails at Chateau Marmont in L.A and ends up in a conversation with this guy about how good his cosmopolitans are:

True story.
