Interaction – Written Sunday 9th October 2005 (Aged 30)


somehow stalled
arrested –
at the traffic lights
it never really called
no emotion
taking pride of place
left feeling unlucky
by the size of fate
no connection
not when death can pout
holding out for victory
of what,
no one is sure
not a race against time
the damage of the swings
plays heavily upon the mind

James Garratt – Sunday 9th October 2005
