Marc Latham’s latest fm poem was written on New Year’s Day while listening to the BBC Radio programme: Suzi Quatro in Search of Jim Morrison, (http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b018b6gj/) which is available in the UK until 10:02PM Wed, 4 Jan 2012. Don’t know if it’s available anywhere else.
The poem is about two very different kinds of lifestyle either side of a warm, dry and comfortable contented reality. One of the alternative bipolar lives would be of pampered luxury in a pleasure palace and the other a rough living hitch-hiking hobo.
Contented Living, Contents of Dreaming
is where I’d like to be
surrounded by women
all sweet as honey
roof under rain, wall in want
the long winding air
flying catapult kingdom
calls my mind on the wind
