Let Me Paint You a Picture – Written Monday 17th August 2020 (Aged 45)

Let Me Paint You a Picture

let me paint you a picture
one,
the likes of which,
you have never seen
let me tell you about a film
let me describe the pivotal scene
let me remind you of a picture
the one with the curious glance
the one where,
the characters are engaged in a merry dance
one,
where fate takes a chance
let me play you a song
one,
where everyone sings along
and a choir of disbanded birds
joins the throng
let me describe an incident
which i saw occur
one where the people collapsed
and the rest joined a fayre
let me paint you a picture
one where you finally come back
it will be,
the likes of which
you have never seen
you will have a watercolour scream
and honesty
will finally, finally have to come clean




James Garratt – Monday 17th August 2020
