People Like Lightbulbs – Written Wednesday 30th December 2009 (Aged 34)

People Like Lightbulbs

people like lightbulbs
not yet lit
or is that,
not yet turned on?
some not really here
and some have gone
some flicker,
and never seem stable
some never quite fit
and some are not able
people like lightbulbs

James Garratt – Wednesday 30th December 2009
