Seaview (Originally Untitled) – Written Monday 9th May 2011 (Aged 36)


does the seaview
change what you really see?
does the painted
antique fireplace
supplement the smile
on your face
does the brick wall
and conservatory extension
give rise
to more assured direction
i wonder
what exactly you really think
i wonder
what it is you really feel
is the lifestyle just a mask
and an expensive bill
does sadness take you to task
upon a mighty hill
does the wine
in racks in the kitchen
help wash away a feeling
that in reality, you really are sinking

James Garratt – May 2011
