Fly My Kite – Written Monday 6th May 2002 (Aged 27)

Fly My Kite

fly my kite
sail my boat
be a girl
keep me afloat
be my cover
fix my tow rope
fly my kite
paint my barge
i am feeling slow
doesn’t all this go so fast
build me a fence
give me medication
that only you can dispense
sow the seams
like a chemist only makes dreams
fly my kite
ride my rails
come home for tea
when all else fails

James Garratt – Monday 6th May 2002
