two years on and memories persist -
cohen in brum town hall in seventy six
and a month each august in south brittany

the midges at loch ness and rain drumming
on the canvas in north wales and the night there
near portmeirion where they filmed the prisoner

and now some say move on and to some extent i have
but things are locked in the bone
and around my feet are twenty-one links of chain
