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
