      EXPERT HERO Judge, Spirit of the Lamp sprouting
      up from the space at the centre of the person -
      He arrives in the night, uninvited, unexpected,
      clears the table and starts examining the books.
      No he doesn't need a cup of anything thankyou.
      Page after page he prises open the weatherstones,
      moths and maybugs hammering on the window panes,
      he weighs our reluctance against metal and opens
      the road into substance, that stretches as far
      as anyone knows. And once the open door is made known
      someone has to go through it. If you merely play
      at access the money turns to treacle.
