Puzzle Maker – Written Tuesday 25th January 2011 (Aged 35)

Puzzle Maker

there is a beat,
maybe i have missed the blip
i am a magician
without a trick
an exhausted runner
just trying to keep fit
a puzzle maker
without the final bit
a marathon walker
who would rather sit
a tailor who cannot avoid the rip

there is a beat
maybe i am blind
the game of hide and seek
that no one can find
the stopwatch
that can never time
the glass of water
when all i wanted was wine
a ladder with no step
and one which i need to climb

James Garratt – Tuesday 25th January 2011
