J H Martin – Cracked Spectacle | Edge of Humanity Magazine

Written by J H Martin @ A Coat for a Monkey


When I sit

I don’t want to


And when I stand

I am nervous


What does that mean

What does that say

What change can I make


The wall

The lamp

The drawings


They are my sole company


Observers of inane routine


They see the stretch

They see the slack


They ask their own mirror


It will be three years

Next month


What lessons have been learned


The glasses on the box

They have not moved an inch
