Notes: Ars(e) Poetica, #7. February 27, 1998. Someone knows who this was for. That’s all that matters. I was sorry then, I’m sorry, now. (And now I’m even more sorry I couldn’t write a decent bloody sonnet, all those years ago!)


Never had I seen two eyes so blue
And wondrous hair, so delicate and fine,
Until I laid my lustful eyes on you
The sight of whom completely blew my mind

Never did we really get along —
Most of that was my fault, I admit —
I wrote you in a couple of my songs
And late apologise for all my shit

With wantonness I frightened you away
In my desire I came on too strong
In my hands I thought you’d turn to clay
Looking back I realise I was wrong

I ask forgiveness now for all my sins
And now I know there was no war to win
