I’m not going out today

I’m not going out today
I have to fix things
In the attic

The attic
Is the naughtiest place on earth
It growls like a bear
And rolls about in the dust
Like a cat

The stuffed fox
I wish it would keep still
It so hurts my head
With its spiked club

And the old-fashioned mirror
With the reflection of the old lady’s face
Why, I looked in during a sleepless night
To see her young again

The contents
Of the jewellery box
Are circle dancing
In the middle of the room
Nothing can return
Back to its proper place
I have to keep picking up the pieces

And the skeleton of the baby bird
Flies about
Looking for seed and wind chimes
Made of stalagmites

While, there by the window
An old coffin without a lid
And inside
My boyfriend is sleeping

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