Thread: Bowie died a year ago today...

    Bowie died a year ago today...

    Bowie died a year ago today, a true legend, talent, genius, in an age when so many with so little discernible talent achieve so much celebrity.



    Conversation Piece


    I took this walk to ease my mind
    To find out what's gnawing at me
    Wouldn't think, to look at me
    That I've spent a lot of time in education
    It all seems so long ago
    I'm a thinker, not a talker
    I've no-one to talk to, anyway

    I can't see the road
    For the rain in my eyes

    I live above the grocers' store
    Owned by an Austrian
    He often calls me down to eat
    And he jokes about his broken English
    Tries to be a friend to me
    But for all my years of reading conversation
    I stand without a word to say

    I can't see the bridge
    For the rain in my eyes

    And the world is full of life
    Full of folk who don't know me
    And they walk in two’s or three’s or more
    While the lamp that shines above the grocers' store
    Investigates my face so rudely
    And my essays lying scattered on the floor
    Fulfil their needs just by being there
    And my hands shake, my head hurts
    My voice sticks inside my throat
    I'm invisible and dumb
    And no-one will recall me

    And I can't see the water
    For the tears in my eyes

    Instead of 2017 being another year of numerous celebrity deaths, it's going to be a year of commemorating the first anniversaries of those who died last year.

    I can hardly believe that a whole year has passed since we were having much Bowie discussion following his death.
