South Horizon, from the album: the Buddha of Suburbia, David Bowie




                                south horizon

                     out on the river
                     the purple is shifting
                     but in the evening-bulb light
                     the world-shaping words
                                of grown ups
                     is shifting uncontrollably

                     it’s OK                     look
                     there is rhythm there
                     is a trombone a hi-hat
                                – shflpt –
                     in the crack there
                     where words shift
                     where worlds shift
