Gooseberry – Written December 2009 (Aged 34)


odd one out
babies on the way
what is it all about
and what can i say
bars of reality,
and the name –
of which we can cheer
and wash down with scorn
sitting there,
in social gatherings
and no one but me
to fend off the questions
windows of opportunity
when you are,
doorstep dreaming
and under scrutiny

James Garratt – December 2009
