G. Murray Thomas

THE WHITE ALBUM

Twelve years old, the world still ahead of me,
searching for clues to the death of a Beatle.
Lyrics always hinting at something beyond what they say.
“Revolution #9” offers the possibility of art in anarchy;
“You become naked,” a seductive whisper in the chaos.
The famous collage poster spread out on the floor,
Paul (the dead Beatle) almost naked in its photos.
I reach no conclusions about the possibly dead Beatle,
but learn a lot about where art comes from.
