"No Longer Elastic" as written by and Patrick Anthony Fitzgerald....
No longer elastic
No longer a whistle call
The creases are deepening
Cracks within the flaws

No longer elegance
No longer La Belle of La Ball
Invisible to ingénus
Who like their flesh taut

Stuck in a power cut
He wipes his mouth and shrugs
This passenger crumbles
Tumbles low and fails
To memorise his memories

Not the man he fantasised:
Suave in Gaultier
Seasoned, travelled, epigrammatic
Parties in Mayfair

No chance ecstatic
No hope of tantric thrall
This squire is tepid
His lust a petty squall

    "Don’t get old. It really is the only advice I can give as a Doctor. Alongside Patti Smith’s ‘Take care of your teeth’. I followed neither and now look at me. This is Pascal’s favourite song."
