Done Gone Wrong

16

Everything done gone wrong
done gone wrong
over the top
down to the edge
can’t fix it baby
I got nothing
I got diddly bop
every damn thing
done gone wrong

you touched me
touched me forever
there was no going back
it was a helluva jolt
you were nothing if not clever
now every damn thing’s
done gone wrong baby
done gone wrong

If it was up to me
but I know it never will be
I’d make you a queen
to rule my lonely land
and those beyond the sea
but every damn thing’s
done gone wrong baby
done gone wrong

This is all I got left
just a long-gone memory
I’ll hold onto that
through the storms ahead
that’s about it that’s my story
done gone wrong baby
every damn thing’s
done gone wrong
done gone wrong

I work with words, sounds and images to come up

with combinations that hopefully do justice to Socrates’

maxim of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

I do believe that the voice is a necessary part of the

full poetic experience, along with music and movement,

even if it’s a movement of the hands or eyes.
