Spring Quartet | Part II

 

Written by J H Martin @ A Coat for a Monkey

 

The breath

Can catch sometimes

 

The stutter

The stumble

The loss of any grace

 

I saw that before

 

In a station

Passed out on the floor

 

Smoking

Chemicals

Twelve-hour shifts

 

They are not good for the pattern

They upset the balance

 

LSD

Vodka

Council block

Friday

 

These weekends and weekdays

They go on for pure time

 

Like a two way mirror

In a cheap backstreet den

 

I can see

But I cannot be seen

 

The shadows are on me

 

The line cuts

And the hand betrays

 

I would laugh

But I don’t

 

The door is open

The lamp is burning
