Transparent People – Written Wednesday 16th January 2013 (Aged 37)

Transparent People

transparent people
that is what we all are
people building lives
hiding, surviving
sometimes clinging to the roof
no one sees the truth
hunt them down,
on display
a department store
trying to buck
an emotional trend
that is what we are
scanning views and thoughts
and the things never caught
hold, told, bought, brought
and sometimes sold
transparent people

James Garratt – Wednesday 16th January 2013
