Self Containment – Written Sunday 28th April 2014 (Aged 39)

Self Containment

self containment
self contained
from tag to it
to off ground touch
child that wanted a hug
kept on my toes
by that awkwardness
and glasses perched
on the end of my nose
i am flailing
i am sailing
i am mailing
chained as i am
to susceptible railings
self contained

James Garratt – Sunday 28th April 2014
