analogy ghosts, 12th March 2017

Sundays are often for many seen as a bit of a throw-away day… that piece of confetti still stuck to your shoes… leftovers…. that party hanger-on the morning after who accepts a free breakfast regarding it as an automatic invitation to also stay for lunch, whose name you don’t know, not a clue of who… Continue reading analogy ghosts, 12th March 2017

tap (all hallows)

Tap, tap, tapping on the window, on the walls, on the door.

glass ghosts, 22nd July 2016

the world’s too big… and it’s too small…. it’s both…. both of both…. it’s cooler, marginally, today, doesn’t help my strange mood though which has been lingering for days now… step-dogging me…… can’t quite see it because whenever I turn around to look it’s there and it isn’t…. glass ghosts……. I see right through them… Continue reading glass ghosts, 22nd July 2016
