Sir Derek Walcott
Although I walk in that shadowy vale, I'm not alone.
Meet me again for tea and cake somewhere in 
The middle. Right there, where thought meets 
Vision, behind the eyes, behind the eyes.
Meet me for tea and cake, again, in the 
Centre of our churning machinery
Tick, tick, ticking. Click, click, 
Clicking. I'm the menagerie.
A loose connection sparking
From neuron to neutron,
Vision to division,
Across to the cross
For crucifixion
In reflection
And, and, 

Sir Derek Walcott, St. Lucian Poet and Playwright, was born today in 1930.

Salvador Dalí, Spanish surrealist artist, died on this day in 1989.
