Making You – Written November 1994 (Aged 19)

Making You

making you –
out of imaginary plasticine
i know what i have seen
and although she said she would
it was not for me
and it came to no good
i know i have lost my sense of reality
and that nicely installed stability
the stability,
that came and went
back in my childhood
destined to never return
all i can do now is learn
making you, but i can’t watch it burn

James Garratt – November 1994
