“THIS IS MY HOME: LARK LANE:A POEM”.BY STEVEN BENSON

A dusky

Summer’s

Night…

Cafe society,

The sound of

A trumpet

From a

Winebar

And a

Guitar

From another….

A deli

Catessen,

(Three olives

For a

Pound!)

A Tattoo

Parlour,

A mystical

Shop..

All in the

Space of

Fifty yards…

Reading Proust

And

My partner

Sitting in

Clifton

Concurrently

And

Feeling sad

For

Lost Time…

All this

Really

Happened

Tonight

In

Lark Lane:

This is

My Home
