>>> these lines tease my head. “One drop of rain on the back of my hand...” It was Verlaine at first of course but in my heart it is always Langley... breaking, breaking... Chris Roberts described the thrill best. Something about “ravishing green fingers playing hoopla with halos” and dancing on throats. <<<

what are you referring to here, Duke? I don't think I have heard this line or whoever you are saying wrote or sang it.

Alistair Fitchett

The reference is to the song 'Breaking In My Heart', originally by Tom Verlaine on his debut solo album, then later covered by Blue Aeroplanes. The Chris Roberts lines of prose are from his delicious sleeve notes for the Blue Aeroplanes 'Friendloverplane' compilation album.
