Glass Houses – Written February 2006 (Aged 31)

Glass Houses

i have never met anyone
who enjoys –
throwing stones –
in glass houses
as much as you do
you seem to gain
some perverse enjoyment from it
i do not understand –
your penchant for pots and kettles
and calling them black
tell me,
what is it –
about glass houses –
and throwing stones
why do you keep on doing it
it just makes you look alone

James Garratt – February 2006
