Biography Of A Friend

Biography Of A Friend  (At His Request)

A tawny wanderer.
Base and basement.
Drone a perfect sigh, warm me over with a knee to the heart. 
Come, draping eyes over me, 
Well, one on the wine 

Oh, this is your light. See how it comes and goes? 
The same as our brawn, 
the brains along, along 
though willing 

And into the river 
Alight alight twice again said 
And lit 
And longer in the tooth 

Come and gone again
