But this wheel is dying


“It’s bright in the heavens and the wheels are flying

Fame and honor never seem to fade
The fire’s gone out but the light is never dying
Who says I can’t get heavenly aid?”

(Bob Dylan in Ain’t talkin’)
Heusden-Zolder (B)

A frightened face in the grey wall


“You need not be frightened,
For Satan’s not there.
He lurks around poverty;
He lurks around gold;
He’s always on duty
Seeking a soul.”

(J.E. McGirt from Avenging the Maine, a Drunken A.B. and Other Poems)
Nerem (B)

Just the goal stands up!


“”Is football playing
Along the river-shore,
With lads to chase the leather,
Now I stand up no more?”

Ay, the ball is flying,
The lads play heart and soul;
The goal stands up, the keeper
Stands up to keep the goal. “

(A.E. Housman in A Shropshire lad, no. 27)

No more singing in the stadium


“Why — do they shut me out of Heaven?
Did I sing — too loud?
But — I can sing a little minor,
Timid as a bird.”

(E. Dickinson in Further poems of Emily Dickinson)

Walking to a dead workshop


“My feet are so tired, my brain is so wired
And the clouds are weeping.

Did I hear someone tell a lie?
Did I hear someone’s distant cry?”

(Bob Dylan in Love sick)
