Disappointed – Friday 1st December 2000 (Aged 25)


disappointed with me
disappointed with you
do not want to talk with you
not in the dark
do not want to walk with you
not when the road is hard
i should have driven
i should have been stable
i should have given
we do not neatly packaged do we?
flat packed and ready to go
we come with bits ill fitting
things that do not line up
and occasionally screws missing
that i do not appear to be –
like the words i write
well, you read between the lines
when you should be reading under the light

James Garratt – Friday 1st December 2000
