Do not let today pass
Hear the weight of deepest
An age has found me where they can’t see past the grey.
Grey = Grandma,
Had it, lost it, past
The way you peel eggs
Creeps up behind my breath & pauses morning.
Rejecting yolk,abandoning it
We share nothing but bath water,
We are all Jammy Dodger hearts.
Have the 9.1 million forgotten the Dream
Blinded by cardamom-infused buttercream?
Someone I only just knew
Decided the poems & paints & love wouldn't do,
And he put a full stop.
It was 13 & 47 and they weren't there.
The bench played its poker face
And for the first time in
Decades and decisions between us
You still step out of time,
Long since the 11C allowed me to ride
You are waiting for me at the just past the bend comma,
Confident in your shape, all pigeon puffed
For all the fucked up reasons that you found my cradle,
Just a rookie on standby who’d filled in
My back never lies
I just choose not to hear,
Until it's truth runs out of patience
As will eases
