Tigers and Lions – Written Sunday 23rd February 2008 (Aged 32)

Tigers and Lions

tigers and lions
in my dreams
you wander through
and nothing is as it seems
simple, straight, true
with the one and only
complete view
hauling memories
like sacks of heavy coal
one is the fuel
to keep out the cold
the other the duvet
for when you are old
tigers and lions

James Garratt – Sunday 23rd February 2008
