Tattooing the Fan

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You, with a head scarf , who expertly
emblazone a god of sports
on the frowny face of an old supporter
didn`t you see it went on raining

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 deep into the day ? While you idled
over the wonderful and passionate outline
of the symbolic god , and the wordless one
sat looking dazed in the mirror .

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The twin towers of Foot Ball and Rugby
dramatically enveloped and darkened …
The spooky cameramen with their eyes
faces ladened as if overrecording things…

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The quick rounds you are making
for a satisfying look
of the curved leg , the rose- coloured head
splendid_ where the name was !
