Workshop – Written March 2020 (Aged 45)


i am in a workshop
using tools
to sharpen my edges
because kindness
and softness was not enough
people did not respond
when it was smooth to the touch

i am in the workshop
as an unskilled person
working on my edges
to ensure they stay sharp
because people
cannot seem to respect humanity
and being semi decent

James Garratt – March 2020
