Between the wave and the tide...
Between sleeping and waking...

Breath in and breath out
Between waking and sleeping
Breath in and breath out
Between sleeping and waking

Between sleeping and waking...
Between seeing and observing...
Between knowing and understanding...
Between the wave...
Between the wave and the tide...

Breath in and breath out
Between Tubular Bells
And Baked Beans on Toast.


Adrift on a raft

Adrift on a raft somewhere,

Adrift on a raft somewhere, jacketed,

Adrift on a raft somewhere, jacketed, tight,

Adrift on a raft somewhere, jacketed, tight, in the straits,
In the straits between...
In the straits between Tubular Bells...
in the straits between Tubular Bells and Baked Beans on Toast...


Adrift on a raft of tubular belles,
On toast for Medusa of baked beans.
Greatcoated flotsam in turbulent currents,
Straightjacketed jetsam in faster waters,
Windless, breathless, rudderless, lost!


In the straits between...

Between...?

Between ships that pass on the Fault Line?


(Words - June, 2015)

The names Cinnomolgus and Hercynea originate in a medieval bestiary.
'There are no satisfactory modern equivalents for these birds.'
From British Myths and Legends edited by Richard Barber.
