Chaise Lounge

Chaise Lounge

i am arrogant…
dearly labelled, it is true
who knew
tht inside
i was broken
and screaming for a view

people do not see
the, stuff, ‘so soft’
they greet you in the parlour
as your thoughts hide in the loft

are a currency
a value based upon the individual
their worth
canned up and dished out

are like clouds formed,
from wisps of smoke
when in doubt
tell a joke

so that is me
the chaise lounge
reclined upon so arrogantly
it is a shame i am anxious and scared
and that is a human reality,
for all

James Garratt – May 2018
