The Trial – Written April 2014 (Aged 39)

The Trial

the trial
of, ‘not worth it’
the woman
with a coat
who wants to be a grown up
but cannot float
the spasms
of indecision
and the trial
of, ‘pretend’
let them fill their boots
let them make friends
we walk through life
with lead weights
some walk through life
with a flicker of fate
the trial
of, ‘seen and heard’
defended by,
it’s, ‘not worth it’

James Garratt – April 2014
