Reception – Written December 2005 (Aged 30)


there is no reception
you try to tune in
but nothing comes through
the screen looks blank
you feed it information
but it says, no thanks
no matter what the situation
just one programme
just one point of view
it is a repair,
and nothing seems new
there is no reception
you’d like to shake the thing
but it is a blank screen
that leaves you wondering
you want to scream
but there is no reception

James Garratt – December 2005
