Inside David Bowie’s Mind by Jonathan Beale

What is your current
state of mind?
He constantly asks himself
pauses for thought
Gridlocked with idea on idea
in the streets and blocks
of the heaving metropolis,
that is his mind.
The consciousness of the conscience
Books – papers – music
Squeezed… crammed in,
Here and there
Time and pressure
‘A song in itself perhaps?’
A diary entry?
From little hell
To Beckenham Palace
And an open mind.
And how Nietzsche talks
to the fertile mind
then his words pour…
then gush…
as the words spit
into rifts and chords
and old Greeks with
Apollo’s lyre. Create in stone.
What is your current
state of mind?
He constantly asks himself
I will tell years hence.
