Stage directions

say ‘fade in’,

bringing up the lights

on the stage’s players

The DJ knows

when to crossfade

the next song

into the sonic tapestry

A sofa’s colour

fade out,

lived in

and loved

Brakes fade,

stopping power


through use

Images fade

into one another,


as transition

On the West Coast,

medicines effects

are referred to

as faded

The barber

fades in

sparse sides

with long tops

A fade isn’t always

a loss of shine,

sometimes fades

represent gain

Two frequencies



into something new

Please don’t fade away

a prayer

a mantra

repeated one millionfold
