"and so it glows"

my life was born inside a book
my spine a paperback /flexible
my taste /emancipated/populist

my father's world was World War 2
My grand father World War One
My adolescence Vietnam(writing begun

to speak to ears and eyes was prime
to hear the Zeitgeist of my times-
Beatles,Who,Rolling Stones

poem became lyric beget song
adolescence beget friendships beget love
combinations random individual

the books i ate became my diet
books i made food for others
buffet,banquet,fast food,feast

now time has gone for some i knew
their books forgotten/my new view
is to treat every last line as my first
