A 1 logo   A poem a day into the millennium
23 October 1999


ready smiles and ready wit
when they're on 
on the town 
on the A list 
on the make
rapid party repartee
that makes them social coup
and dinner trophies
bright, bright, bright 
young couple 
shining bright
when the light is on 
but home alone 
the weight
pulls down their mouths
and they sink
below the load
below the surface
to the deep, cold place
where anchors lie
- Ken Peters
