Under The Sun

Sunday, March 23, 2003



As naught gives way to aught
and oxhide gives way to chain mail
and byrnie gives way to battle-ax
and Cavalier gives way to Roundhead
and Cromwell Road gives way to the Connaught
and "I Am Curious (Yellow)" gives way to "I Am Curious (Blue)"
and barrelhouse gives way to Frank'N'Stein
and a pint of Shelley plain to a pint of India Pale Ale
I give way to you.

--Paul Muldoon, from "As", from Moy Sand and Gravel
