Woke up at four then with each passing train

Been waiting all weekend for Monday again

Saw two magpies but one of them was dead

Is that sorrow or joy for a superstitious head?


anxiety and worry is all about me

I’m all on my own yet surrounded by family

My age is now greater than my waist

So there’s less time to waste on a wrong mental place
