Cider with Miranda in the Park



‘Suffer the Little Children’ – Pat Benatar


Going to work in five hours…


The Man Who Fell To Earth was absolutely excellent. 

It exceeded all the parameters of my expectation, and defies any praise I could thrust upon it.  My only regret is that I did not videotape it.  BOWIE was excellent and looked his best ever.






‘Let’s Stay Together’ – Pat Benatar


It seems Miranda and I have achieved something beautiful, wonderful.  Our time apart was for good reason, and now it is as if we were never apart.


She and I met at 7pm tonite and walked down MAGAZINE LANE and across WISBECH to the house of her friend Anna (remember her?  She had a ‘thing’ with Jazz Thompson?).  They spoke of Exam Results (Miranda fucked hers up and failed them all) and I shyly sat in silence. 


Anna was stunned to see Miranda with me, and Miranda had taken her off to the kitchen to explain the situation.  This was not all, it seemed, as she had also asked Anna if I could come to her ‘get-together’ on FRIDAY evening and stay the night.  Anna did not seem to mind.  I’ll go then, and on SATURDAY I shall leave for young Flash’s house.


‘Ship Of Fools’ – Erasure


After Anna’s, Miranda and I bought Cider and we sat in the Park.


It seems our ‘relationship’ is ‘unserious’, but also extremely serious.  It’s hard to work out.  I’m all for taking it easy to begin with; as long as I can see her and as long as we’re making love like the other night, then that’s great by me.  I just love being with her, but I think she’s cautious for a variety of reasons – the main one being her mother.  I am a secret to her mother at the moment.  Hopefully not for too long.  It’s best to get these things out in the open.
