If Coleridge Had Driven a Morris Minor

mm - Copy

(for Chris)

With beauty seen as a
unity in multiplicity, Samuel would have
approved its mass production,

warmed to the Germanic
influence of design – a Kantian love
for this aesthetics of simplicity in

the sublime – and the
Englishness of tradition with innovation:
like verse with rhymes

before a run of
mimesis along an assembly line.
A ‘53 phase II could

have a top to put
down, composing in the passing air as if
on a long poet’s stride.

Independence would be in the
suspension of disbelief – because it simply was –
and rack and pinion

steering like a flight of
poetic feathers on the thrust of wings:
STC’s journey to the divine.
