A Nudge and a Wink – Written Sunday 5th December 2010 (Aged 35)

A Nudge and a Wink

my past
comes with a nudge and a wink
my thoughts
always include the kitchen sink
my girlfriend
exists in place not yet found
right now,
she is doing things –
that she will eventually forgot
fate will ensure –
that somehow we meet
and our lives will intertwine
as we join up our streets
my future
is a surprise birthday party
in a room
i have not yet entered
with lights
not yet turned on
do not say surprise
if you know me well
you well know, it’s not those eyes –
that entice me
