Who’s standing there

Who’s standing there?
between me and you
It’s no one
it’s just the wind

It’s just a shadow
It’s just a dragon
in a wedding gown

It’s just the failing roof slates
from a collapsing home
It’s just the ghost of my feet
lost, not knowing where to go

It’s only a bear sitting on the chimney pot
crushing the fire in the grate
It’s the man I’m to be
in a sea of sorrow
It’s how I’ve been made
unwanted, like a tax bill
It’s the weight of nonsense
tumbling out into the darkness like a ton of iron

Now that I know what it is
– it’s a dot matrix printer
That came to my home
on the Beagle of the digital age
like a strange un-named bird

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
