Notes Regarding Notes I
Oil and Water separated, At the touch of chemical Change, contrast and flow. Flamenco Sketches. Feelings low.
Metal from stone. Gold from Rome. You are the cotton that keeps me warm, The stomach lining and butterfly swarm.
How does it appear so? That two lives are lived, Yet not one hearing knows From where all the magic grows.
Ollie Dickson, 15th April 2019, London
