A Good News Story – Written Monday 31st August 2020 (Aged 45)

A Good News Story

i could have wept
when,
they gave me the news
i was already –
down in my shows
and working hard
as an unpaid miner
just so i could –
perfect the art –
of digging deep
i was overwhelmed
when,
they gave me the news
i was already –
rifling through my options
and,
looking at my ammunition
i was,
shuffling through my confidence
as it experienced malnutrition
but,
when they gave me the news
i felt the colour return –
to my living room shores
i held off the latch
and caught the catch
i could have wept –
when they gave me the news
