Flowing – Written Wednesday 24th January 2001 (Aged 25)


days like lions
like pennies in slots
like tied down dreams
and forget me nots

days like water
like a wishing well
like the father who left
and the one who meant well

days like religion
likes the weight around your neck
like days out as a child
and days of holy respect

days like feet
like sunken alleyways
like stolen streets
and new found days

days like a slipknot
days like a riverboat queen
like a late night theatre show
and a new found feeling
days like these,
days that are ever flowing

James Garratt – Wednesday 24th January 2001
