Happy Place – Written February 2022 (Aged 46)

Happy Place

happy place
loss of face
fall from grace
subtle lies
draped in lace
pack the suitcase
find a wall
build a base
time for more
hidden behind the claw
deep bore
soft stroke
and soft paw
some kind of law
i know what you saw
reliable chores
fight for a left wing cause
happy place
dreams blow a gale
never feeling nailed
a bedtime fail
run to the female
find identity and set sail
dreams out on bail
failure is a tall tale

James Garratt – February 2022
