Today’s Date – Written Monday 20th September 2010 (Aged 35)

Today’s Date

it is just ships
trying to find land
trading boats
finding a dock
lost keys
looking for a lock
nervous knees
that start to knock
another sheep
looking for a flock
if you believe
and do not think
the ship will float
and never sink
but it does not feel like anything real
but what is true
and what is fake
a summer swimmer
looking for a lake
arriving somehow too late
another calendar
looking for the perfect date

James Garratt – Monday 20th September 2010
