Across the Dark Side of the Moon

He goes home, seeking consolation

Among old Beatles and Pink Floyd

But “Girl” elicits mere frustration,

While “Money” leaves him more annoyed.

Alas, he hungers less for money

Than for a fleeting Taste of Honey.

Murmuring, “Money–it’s a gas!…

The lunatic is on the grass,”

He pours himself a beer. Desires

And reminiscences intrude

Upon his unpropitious intrude

Until he feels that he requires

A one-way Ticket to Ride—and soon—

Across the Dark Side of the Moon.

Vikram Seth (The Golden Gate)
