BENEATH THE WHEEL (for Hermann Hesse):

Division of power
          is all it seems

Derision of sound
The mountain lies bound
          beneath the sea

When genius is found
The sound that resounds
          is one of apathy

The summit, just shone
An island alone
          far out at sea

But, I will remember
I will remember you into the sea

It's the lights
          of the city that are calling me
But it's the nights
          that are killing me

Though you walk inside
          it's I alone choose who will stay
          By night you smile; deride the day

July 2000, Michael Anderson (w/ Peter Schreiner)
