A Momentary Lapse of Reason



it can all turn

on a word

a smile

an action

a hesitation

a judgement

a confusion

an attraction

a promise

a mistake

a brave leap

into the dark.



it can all turn

on a momentary lapse

of reason.

The musical among you will know that ‘A Momentary Lapse of Reason’ was a Pink Floyd studio album way back in the 1980s. I hope David Gilmour et al do not mind me using the title for this untidy scrap of poetry.
