Two Spirits

by Nick Dellow

I doubt that the erstwhile dopey writer would have expected such a literal interpretation. "like watching a man compose a beautiful poem" is surely intended as a metaphorical remark that alludes to a man finding artistic inspiration. OK, it's not exactly an allegorical masterpiece on a par with Shelley, but I think we can forgive him for that. After all, Mark Twain recognised that "Everything has its limit - iron ore cannot be educated into gold."
