57. Moving Pictures

1. Tom Sawyer
2. Red Barchetta My uncle has a country place that no-one
\tknows about
He says it used to be a farm, before the
\tMotor Law
Sundays I elude the 'Eyes', andhop the
\tTurbine freight
To far outside the Wire, where my white-
\thaired uncle waits

\tJump to the ground
\tAs the Turbo slows to cross the borderline
\tRun like the wind,
\tAs excitement shivers up and down my spine
\tDown in his barn
\tMy uncle preserved for me, and old machine-
\tFor fifty-odd years
\tTo keep it as new has been his dearest dream

I strip away the old debris that hides the
\tshining car
A brilliant red Barchetta, from a better,
\tvanished time
Fire up the willing engine, responding with
\ta roar!
Tires spitting gravel I commitmy weekly

\tWind in my hair -
\tShifting and drifting -
\tMechanical music -
\tAdrenalin surge -

\tWell-weathered leather
\tHot metal and oil
\tThe scented country air
\tSunlight on chrome
\tThe blur of the landscape
\tEvery nerve aware

Suddenly ahead of me,across the
A gleaming alloy air-car shoots toward me,
\ttwo lanes wide
I spin around with shrieking tires, to run the
\tdeadly race
Go screaming through the valley as another
\tjoins the chase

Drive like the wind
Straining the limits of machine and man
Laughing out loud
With fear and hope, I've got a desperate plan

At the one-lane bridge
I leave the giants stranded
At the riverside
Race back tothe farm
To dream with my uncle
At the fireside...
3. Yyz
4. Limelight
5. The Camera Eye
