1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 One who moved with the knowing rhythm
Of a Latin dancer
One who drove the sensuous silhouette past
Defenders whose heads went down like
Curtains upon a deserted stage
This to neglect schoolbooks
This to dream unblemished dreams
This to forge goals from the fires of Mercury
The messenger and the message
Claiming hearts
That did not labour as those
Who look but cannot see.
