A Neutral Colour – Written July 2017 (Aged 42)

A Neutral Colour

paint the walls a neutral colour
put personality back into a box
make sure you have folded your dreams
and put them back,
in the airing cupboard
make sure you have pulled up –
your ankle length your socks
and no meaningful personality
will be allowed to leak
i see the frame. i see the picture
it is bland but no one can be blamed
it is not designed to capture
paint the walls a neutral colour




James Garratt – July 2017
