[The following thought symphony was kindly shared with us by Happy Cow's good friend Simon Drew. When he is not busy playing the thought piano, Simon can be found sporting remarkable haircuts, making otherwise all together ladies quiver with one raise of his eyebrow, advising small groups of really marvellous people on how to be more marvellous and running the online groups English Stuff and International Monthly Hatstand Day. When you return from nowhere, why not leave a comment at the bottom of this page.

you wish to choose between
this and that?
this smoke and that smoke
see how long you can grasp smoke
in your hands
you in your dreams of this and that
dream you have a choice
on the street outside
a raised voice
and torrents of laughter
break these marching lines
broken, on the table
what you drank from before
yet you still search for the old cup
all that you find you throw away
and claim there is nothing there!
looking for steak in the ocean
lumps of clay on the sea floor
