The Dog and Stick (Originally Untitled) – Written October 2010 (Aged 35)

The Dog and Stick

here i am, looking at social functions
which one,
are you going to go for?
they question me but never truly ask
apparently i chase women
like the dog in the park –
chases the worthless stick
i am outfield
trying not to miss
being single
pared to the bone
the word single,
is made to dress up as the word, ‘alone’
so,
i must embrace genetic engineering
and find myself a clone
so i chase women
like that dog in the park
chases the thrown stick
sometimes when you lack a whole
you just take bits
and sometimes when you aim for my personality
you just miss




James Garratt – October 2010
