I was reading a lot of poetry for a while
and think it made me smarter and more aware
then something unpleasant arose and derailed me
I didn’t become stupider or less aware just
sadder, unenthusiastic and distracted
Years ago I remember learning (authoritatively; big surprise)
that Ray Davies was a difficult person
you wouldn’t want to know
I’ve never let it distract me from the value
of his work and the pleasure it gives me
but the solo records aren’t so great
it’s the performances that are lacking
(no Dave)
