teehee – Promote Yourself


It’s lights out in 30 minutes
Living every tick somewhere
In your face and nowhere
In the pages
Of the play That Someone wrote
“for Joan” “for Guy”
And that is beautiful to me.
The string slipping perfectly
Through the blue eye.
I don’t care
For anyone else because
It’s lights out in 20 minutes
So this is my time
And I’ll be not in those tocks
But around your body –
A famous astronaut
(just a thought)
And I’ve drawn the curtain
And looking at the clock
It’s lights out in 15 minutes.
It’s cold here but I don’t mind
It’s warm there, so
I’ll get to the house
In the northern moor
Because through that door
Leaps heat.
And it’s lights out in 5 minutes
I’ve been living in a different clock
My brain’s in the wrong box.
I just had a thought –
I don’t need to write it down,
I am an astronaut.
