A Day in the Life

The Daily Mail reports the death of Tara Browne
Guinness heir
Crashes into a van to pull it off.
The nerve
Was he someone important?
Meanwhile, Lester's film finds no audience
While we turn on
An alarm click.
Nothing happens on the bus--
Smoking, school, falling asleep.
Take comfort in the paper's account of too many ruts in the road,
Enough for a concert in South Kensington.
