Liverpool Dreams

3. Stepping Out

    Walk down eighteen stone steps:
    Another world
    from bustling Liverpool streets,
    shadows bursting, fragments of silence
    shattered in midday sun.

    Through a tiny doorway to a dark dungeon,
    ceiling arches over a dancefloor,
    connected tunnels of reddish brick
    drip with sweat;
    Rickety wooden chairs,
    shimmering under a few token lights,
    where office workers, push against girls
    squashed in short skirts with beehive hair,
    gulp down a lunch of imagination.

    A stage: few planks on supports.
    Liverpool Boys in black T-shirts,
    leather trousers and jackets
    spun a universe,
    a left hand bass player
    and right hand rhythm,
    come together for vocals,
    guitars spread out like wings.

    A cellarful of noise:
    The Cavern in Matthew Street,
    sweating storms explode,
    buzz and hum with Rock and Roll.

    Lightning flashes
    breath out a magic
    poured into bottles of youth.
    Flared messages surf
    from dark corners of the aquarium.

    A fresh, innocent beat:
    Rhythmic Revolutionaries,
    step between shadows,
    making their own beds:
    Farmyards of Vision.
