Stopped buying CDs.
Old gestures rest better
like heads spiked and pitched
in the sand, flag flaring
to the world.

Hardcover books with spines
smooth and unsullied as newborns’,
un-kissed by the sun
and the wind;
pages yet to yellow.

Fashion feigns goodwill;
all the class and depth
of an anthill,
memorised quotes; prints from
gallery gift-shops.
