Alvin Stardust - d. October 23rd 2014

At the gates
a queue is forming;
angels in black,
sideburns, gloved hands,
fingers pointing
straight at you,
Bernard! Shane! Alvin!

Lynda Bellingham - d. October 19th 2014

Dinner is served 
in an unreal house.
At the table 
no-one speaks.
Somewhere else;
a place is set.
Another family waits
for you 
to come through.

John Holt - d.19th October 2014

Time, master of tides,
turns down the guitar,
the organ;
leaves just bass,
and the mellow
string section
of your voice.

Lynsey De Paul - d. October 1st 2014

Your mannered 70's glamour,
pouting at a lonely piano,
came, went and was forgotten.
Tragedies? We got 'em.
