Share a Sixpence – Written Friday 6th August 2021 (Aged 46)

Share a Sixpence 

do not fall apart
find yourself
a paperweight 
and a way to -
keep out the draft
be like -
the very best paperchains
do not shed -
hopeless paper tears 
for your life 
because your life
is always your own
and the roads
and the boulders
are no place to home
this is now -
and this is a moment
where the world
tires share a sixpence 
how have humans become this
given their experience

James Garratt - Friday 6th August 2021
