Experience Barges In – Written Thursday 8th April 2021 (Aged 46)

Experience Barges In

experience barges in
as if,
you are at school
in a classroom
it barges in
begins to teach
and you are hypnotised
by its voice
experience is relentless
you have no choice
and then,
you do know something’s
or you know too much
has lost its golden touch
once you have been taught
or reluctantly learnt
every moment of innocence
is quickly burnt
there is no childlike pose
and no,
first night shows
experience barges in
and suddenly, everything goes

James Garratt – Thursday 8th April 2021
