Did you ever get the idea
that you’re not really here
but
somewhere else?

and when you’re somewhere else
you’re not really there.

Archaeologists would have a field trip
strip away a layer to uncover yet another

It’s the cat and the cream
against
the man and his dream

all soured in the end.

but I have a friend who wants me
to join him in
Newton-le-Willows
I might make the trip on my own.
