' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' 'Longing For Tsong

Holt Marvel
(real name Eric Maschwitz)

sweats over
his song lyrics

in the summer
of '36.

I sing it now
all over the house

from the shower
as I Hoover


do the dishes.


It follows me
around.

Holt or Eric
was then romantically linked

to the wonderful Chinese-American
actress Ann May Wong

real name
Wong Liu Tsong
(Frosted Yellow Willows) .

They part &
he leaves

Hollywood for
England.

The song reflects his longing
for Tsong.

THESE FOOLISH THINGS
make me smile


sing it all over
again

Your mind is such a traveler :) I like the plenty of links and references from a single detail to beginning of some stories... As if you open a door after a door after a door and leave the reader to look a bit into other rooms...
