The Street Lights – Written February 2008 (Aged 32)

The Street Lights

turn on the street lights
give this road some meaningful route
give this wayward vehicle some direction
come on,
tell it how to steer
just keep it close and keep it near
we live in these ever changing times
we live under a sky,
which hangs by a thread
turn the street lights back on
and make our maps real




James Garratt – February 2008
