The Second Twilight Manifesto



Skip the first as we must.    Let’s begin to believe

the unbelievable.    Like a night in the tropics but

drug-fuelled with realism and the best bits to

come still liquid in the pipeline.    You keep

asking why and I try but just can’t tell you.

Whatever the inconvenience say goodbye – as

and when – to the chatter of engines.    Think

paradise in a packet or dream of Whitehall

with its by-tomorrow redactions and fad for

musical chairs.    I’m thinking how delicious is

the fruit how stale was the committee.    Say hi

to the next new intelligence arresting the mind.
