The Sale



Static…static faces…static lifelines.


parallel lives lost

forgotten now

switched off in sudden confusion

not wanting to fail.

Choices? futures sold/spent.

the easy choice…we do the ‘right thing’

freely we take them in an instant

in search of ?…Contentment

greed we seek everything now

blinded of tomorrow..but once signed

now changes

suddenly it is today

dawn rising seeking you out

got to get free…..Run

a fleeting image troubles us

in fear we stop

trembling we falter

stumbling tumbling we fall

horrible/ shallow/ empty/ awfulness


round and round/puzzling/fumbling

blaming it is too late – ‘Shop Closed’

we have forgotten who we were ever once to be..
