Arts and Crafts Chair – Written May 2014 (Aged 39)

Arts and Crafts Chair

we all think
could do better
and mental health
is your own business
when you share it with the world
comments will pour in
a night of lemonade and sin
a cake of tears then doused in gin
we all think
i could do better
sitting behind a desk
it’s an arts and crafts chair
and the wind feels fresh
there is age
pulling out the bones
there is a phase
something that forms

James Garratt – May 2014
