Shimmering

Golden Earring was a one hit wonder
– twice –
here in the US
with a hit song every decade
from the seventies
all the way
to the eighties.

They used radar love
to find the twilight zone
and never returned
at least to our shores.

In their home
those four
are bigger than Jesus
(who never grew especially tall
in the Netherlands)
and are,
in fact,
a thirty hit wonder.

They have survived the vagaries of fashion
for over fifty years
over there.
Here,
they are little more than
two shimmering lights
– something akin
to golden earrings.
