Your mind blossoms, mine is withering
It's all over then, I guess. A final curtain has come down, amidst a stage of occupations and withering, silent applause. We tried. And we failed. Escape routes, sadly, will now need to be planned; a big exit is coming in from the West heading South. Just wish I knew what 'reconfigured' actually meant though. To be kept? Abandoned? You know, I might need to ask Mark to write a song about University restructuring, then maybe I'd actually hear what they are saying; I'd pay attention to the brutal words a little more if he was whispering them in my second-hand ears, whilst those nylon heart-on-strings scatter acoustic sound, like minature paint brushes being put to good use by an army of hipstah centipedes on a canvas that appears to have no edges or centre. It just sits there, waiting to be made known, to be completed.
