Record

 

Written by J H Martin @ A Coat for a Monkey

 

I have only got one

And I never set one

 

Record

 

My breath for the dust

My skin for the stone

My disappointments for air

 

That’s what I want

To do this morning

 

Four walls

One screen

 

The same old same old

Walk around

The unemployed industrial estate

 

To gaze

To forget

 

The causes and essence

The gains and the cons

 

Record

 

I have a problem connecting

 

The wiring don’t work

My hands turned to mush

 

This is not a pretty summary

This is not an argued point

 

The heart beats

The heart stops

 

Record
