I Am A Trouble Maker – Written Saturday 18th June 2011 (Aged 36)

I Am A Trouble Maker

they say it is a crisis
it is just –
another thing they do
i build treehouses
with the chances i blew
magnolia,
it would be, ‘nice’
if only for a while
it could paint over tears
even if it cannot pour a smile
magnolia,
i dream of making my life
less hard than it is
i am a trouble maker
despite my so called gifts
i dream in opaque
on dressing table plinths
they say it is a crisis
it is just the life they chose
i wait for the choices
then somehow it all changes
and another moments goes




James Garratt – Saturday June 2011
