Personal Coup – Writing September 2017 (Aged 42)

Personal Coup

i know,
parts of me are a mess
i fear
and i wonder
what would happen
should those parts
mount a coup
if my poorest mental health
had the key
what would it do?
if my, ‘demons’
decided to head out of the house
if they were the leading candidate
or in with a shout
i fear a collapse
when the anxious moments
land upon my back
i watch back
cine films events in my head
how close i have come to being dead
to falling apart

James Garratt – September 2017
