Colouring Book – Written Friday 10th July 2020 (Aged 45)

Colouring Book

i coloured in, up to the edges
of the colouring book i owned
then,
i went outside,
and i caught a dream
and i chased all the way home
here is the weather
here is the storm
and those delusional dispatches
have not yet filled out their forms
and then, i went back,
to a place i once knew
i coloured in, up the edges
all the lies that had come true
i caught a dream
and i chased it all the way home
it was hope that i had never known
