Biro Examination – Written March 2021 (Aged 46)

Biro Examination

perhaps,
i should have –
never written it down
my life
that is
people will say,
oh, but what a gift
but i am sat on my pavement
paying for the trip
how i dwell
on the more painful parts
decisions made
that weigh down my past
i trudge through –
self indulgent –
biro examination
detailed analysis
of my life which has quickly gone by
perhaps –
i should have never –
written it all down
my life,
that is
from a baby child
to pretence,
and pretending to be a young man
to those moments of chaos
and all those ill advised plans




James Garratt – March 2021
