age is not a curse

he appeared from my side

they tell me he said you know things

things about the band with three leaders

Barrett Gilmour & Waters


the last with that inflection kids have

an uptick question lilt on the last of the sentence

so we jawed for a while about the Pink Floyd

took it outside to sit in the sun

taking it easy & for him to smoke

& while I talked some on Syd David & Roger

the arc of the band from the beginnings

he got his fixings pouch out to roll

the ritual if you like of joining papers

adding in a bit of tobacco then the green

he was asking questions all the time

he’d certainly read up about the band

but couldn’t quite make it all stick in his head

the sequence of things why Waters

might feel the way he did about the band

were Syd & David ever real leaders?

or frontmen while Waters wrote the most?

& as the sun wore down he smiled more

thanked me for sharing out my thoughts words

its been great to do this share thoughts

though I knew how he really felt

not once had he offered a pull on those joints

& I smiled back as I took my leave

y’know kid I said it’s going to be ok

you need to know though

age is not a curse
