Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Boy

Tom is 9
going on 10

& pens
' a few little verses

about the sadness
of having to

start school
again

every Monday morning.'

Already young
Master Eliot

can see
THE WASTELAND

spreading out
before him.

'Monday is the cruellest day
breeding Mathematics

out of the deadened brain! '

'Damn...damn it...damn ya! '

'Language Thomas...language! '

'Shhhhh...Tom...shushhhh! '
I comfort him.

'Shanti...shanti...shanti.'
