Selfish Rowing Boats – Written Thursday 17th January 2013 (Aged 37)

Selfish Rowing Boats

love you,
even though selfish rowing boats
have dragged me up river
you know,
fear and trust stopped my coach
and given me a shove
love you

love you,
when you are all pretty eyed
and the troops have been sent away
when you stop fighting thistles
and you let the daisies swing
easy to say,
but just be yourself, stop tying knots
love you

James Garratt – Thursday 17th January 2013
