on the radio the Who's 'My Generation'
drawn into the power, passion
good to feel that strength
but better to know it's just a song
here today, gone already, that's fine.
like an emotion, like a lover, like a mountain
impermanent and subject to skewed interpretation
like my work, my words, these words
they arise like myriad songs on the radio
and fade out, disappear, replaced by the new
till the body dies and the radio is switched off
