Counting The Hours – Written May 1999 (Aged 24)

Counting The Hours

counting the hours
planting dreams just like flowers
i look outside
with its high street trickle
at the activity of people
who, like time, seem fickle
watching the screen
counting the hours
luck seems so mean
and it appears to have god like powers

James Garratt – May 1999
