“Real Rhythms”


W<J>P Newnham.

[For Micky Fuller]


Real rhythms meld and mesh and heal and hold:

Real rhythms.


Paul; and pulling rightwards I can take

Any dealt hand to do what you want

To play.

Pray not vengeance.


Real rhythms change and hold:

What you’ve got you use.

It’s simple.


There is need for change and we know

That it is coming and

You feel the change

And we ready ourselves with sin.


Where now brother?

Take me.
