It’s in the trees, it’s coming…

Winging my way this week to London to see Kate Bush… at last.

My favorite author on my favorite musician.

Kate Bush from the video for “Rocket Man.” 

One month from today, I will be seeing her live at the Hammersmith Apollo in London! 

" If you are under the impression you have already perfected yourself, you will never rise to the heights you are no doubt capable of. "

In Tavistock Square

I am sleeping in the corner of your ghost house, Virginia.
Your Blitz-bombed house now a hotel full of rooms,
not of one’s own, but for a parade of never-ending strangers.
I rub my hand over your hard, slick head in the square,
wet with summer rain, your hawkish nose turned toward
the other bomb site, the metal bus a twisted bloom.
Dickens wrote Hard Times on the other side of the trees,
and I find that living here is hard and has no time
for idealistic, broke dreamers. He wrote Bleak House there, too.
I am stubborn, Virginia. I come back again and again
even as this city pulls me close and pushes me away,
in love with bellow and uproar; London; this moment of June.
Perhaps I should reconsider the scattering of my ashes,
commit them to the breeze that blows through Bloomsbury.
Make me fertilizer; plaster; eye grit; nowhere; everywhere.
