Some words about the title -|
Art route, seen clear, acts
In just one more dirty old town -
to seize her here in Caesar Street
or be by her castrated in Cut Lane?
All those decades ago there was no seizing, no castrating.
Decades later I couldn't resist the word play - its all just metaphor.

and, as if it were needed,
to hear further confirmation
by Screamin' Jay Hawkins
and, for those with jaded palates,
an exercise in lingering bathos
by The Portsmouth Sinfonia
Elaboration and exaggeration, A La Recherche.....?
ART ROUTE, SEEN CLEAR, ACTS = self-mythologising?
but even so, a decent image.
