Bouncing Ball – Written Wednesday 15th January 2020 (Aged 44)

Bouncing Ball

chasing that bouncing ball –
down the road
it is like trying to chase –
your hopes and ambition
especially when –
the road is downhill
and the ball keeps on bouncing
no matter how you feel

keep on chasing –
that bouncing ball
flailing arms, discreet charms
spider legs, not quite fed
there it goes –
that bouncing ball
straight down the hill
able to navigate curves
we crash land –
with significant verve
chasing that bouncing ball –
down the road




James Garratt – Wednesday 15th January 2020
