So sorry to...
I find myself...as you can see
beyond a means of moving to the side.
Before your time I drove to here
without your...sourness and

ignore the hopelessness and see the song,
which fills my life with joy and laughs.
So you there, yes you, please,
my gift to you-

Breakfast for Kevin was about a slowness when the colours of the world switched on one by one, when silence mellowed into soft sounds. The sizzle of the grill. The plop of the coffee. The rustle of the paper. Now only enjoyed when wife and children were away. Like today!

For Harry, it was always the new, never the old. But the new had to be novel, not a rehash so not for him a series of blondes; it was instead a kaleidoscope of ever changing forgotten beauties. But Mary was unique, not as the newest, but as the last.
