Cargo of Regret – Written Thursday 18th March 2021 (Aged 46)

Cargo of Regret

i need to –
stop taking my holidays
in places,
that bring my mood down
you know, places like –
memory town
where it is just too much
and a place of long lost bets
on the sea of my memory
and a boat with a cargo of regret
it does me no good
and when i –
return from this holiday
i have no stories to tell
all i can say is, i am very sorry
for my tendency to dwell

James Garratt – Thursday 18th March 2021
