Cage life

When I woke it was within a wheel, a spoke stuck in my brain I’ll never see the Guinea pig in the same light ever again. It must be very difficult to catapult away I suppose that’s why I’m in a wheel and in a wheel, I’ll stay. So I run and I run and…

If I lose track of the track play the Beatles, ‘Get back’ I’m back on the right track a dip through the light shack where I once belonged. ‘Lola’ was the King and Queen sat on turquoise a harlequin, chinks in his armour ‘Kinks’ in her hair it’s always ‘Dead end street’ somewhere. I lose…

I hear you breathing softly under the sheets when you’re next to me I hear your sighs so lightly when you’re dreaming in your sleep and when I run my fingers through the dreams in which you keep my heart still beating hotly and I thought I was asleep how can it be that you…

Notes off the page
