Jar On The Shelf – Written Wednesday 30th December 2009 (Aged 34)

Jar On The Shelf

i am only trying to save myself
from being –
that jar on the shelf
full of sweets
but submerged in complications
and lacking a steady beat
i am only trying to stem my hurt
from falling to the floor
where it pleads poverty
whilst contemplating hordes

James Garratt – Wednesday 30th December 2009
