I have a plan said sometime never

We’re both in time and out of luck but as luck would have it I have a lucky rabbit’s foot, not lucky for the rabbit though. Time’s a factor or a malefactor, a crime to rhyme it but I’m the criminal and it’s fine by me. The weekend calls me I cock a deaf ‘un…

It’s only sad because you didn’t understand that the lie of the land was a lie, we get over it, hardship? I’ve sailed on that ship before and sunk without fear to reappear at a later date, Well it’s never too late to learn and if bridges have to burn burn the lot of them…

Four thirty plus

Wednesday is a trap which we willingly fall into, thinking as we do that the week’s half way through. but it’s downhill from here which is a trifle bit queer because it feels like I’m in second gear. I’ll be awake for as long as it takes. I did dream I do dream would you dream…

Stretched out

If there is any doubt about the Big Bang theory don’t voice it I am weary of the naysayers the ones who cannot see where we all started. I don’t profess to understand it or what was there before it and does anything come after it? but I believe it I only have one question…

Finally, my eyes unglue from the night and the light seeps through like a sad song. and it was not so long ago when I knew it all, but even angels fall and I’ve never been one of them, so unglued I fuse, replaced to face a Sunday which plays a background symphony, Mahler’s number…
