Today – Written Tuesday 22nd February 2022 (Aged 46)


i am not working as well –
as i could
and a dull ache –
has found the left side of my neck
it has packed its bags
and travelled to my shoulders
and finally –
it has arrived at its destination
which happens to be –
the left lower part of my back
i sit here,
with my heavy eyes
the type that no weightlifter could lift
and today,
they do not reveal their gifts
what to do?
looking at world of paint and glue
saying goodbye to homely view
life and its many paths
which ones do we choose?

James Garratt – Tuesday 22nd February 2022
