Almost art

Bolan sings Dylan,
Dayan’s on the Golan
the radio’s howling
“Caroline”

Back in a time back to front
where the future we hunt
shoos us away.

McGuire’s in the evening
bleeding,
the Magic Dragon’s on the run
Summer in the City is like
Summer in the Sun
only colder.

what now?
Telegram Sam with electronic spam?

Still busy reading the instructions
destruction’s a hard thing
to master.
but I’ll get to the burn out
worn out
and turn up in top hat
and tails.
