Let us meet midway
between the ruins and today.
Let our meeting be ‘Transatlantic’.
I suggest that we meet at the statue
and in an hour.
I hope that this is not too short notice?
[If you need Directions, you will find them at Lost]
I hope you make it!
Please do not be disappointed to find me so ordinary.
I may be no one word poem
and describers of me do not agree on this:
I am the shy, greying, part-time-punk and rebel.
[But be warned] I can be rhetorical!
I carry a soap-box everywhere I go
and [please be Told] I am known to holler in every abandoned town
of an Atlantic divide between the so-called ‘two cultures’.
Meet you at the statue in an hour!
