Today is Slower Than Yesterday – Written Tuesday 30th December 2008 (aged 33)

Today is Slower Than Yesterday

today is slower than yesterday
of this I am sure
it has no high water mark
just its futuristic lure
today I feel slowed down
of that I am in no doubt
it’s as if the punch of my personality
suddenly has no clout
today is slower than yesterday
the sea I dream in
and in which I try to swim
i feel lead weights on my feet
and I can smell nothing but gin
today is slower than yesterday
of that I am sure
i wait with baited breath
one hand reaching for an unknown future




James Garratt – Tuesday 30th December 2008
