What I see now Isthe girl who saved me From torching my path through The sky. At breakneck speedsTowards oldness and deadness And all the monsters we Fought in youth, who woreties, Breathed fire, and who worked more Than played. What you are now Isdropped out and free As you scheme to tag whales Off the coast of Wales or Studythe Earth in New Zealand.
