It’s been a long while since I’ve posted anything (blame a very busy life!) but I thought I’d start uploading the remainder of the NaPoWriMo pieces I did so I can complete the set here, and maybe start posting newer stuff as well. Enjoy.
I’ve always been interested in language.
Like how read and read are the same written down
But context gives them both a sound
Which makes them different.
Or the words which are the same no matter what,
The only difference again being this thing called context
Can and can
Right and right
Beam and beam
So when you asked me to make my shots harder
It’s almost like you intended me to
Hit the ball off the sweet spot of the bat
Where it makes the dull thump sound
Where it feels like nothing at all
It’s almost like you should have been prepared for the cricket ball that came flying at you like a clarification
It’s almost like
You wanted me to hit you
Dead between the eyes
Like some kind of middle class, back garden David and Goliath.
So if you think about it
It isn’t my fault
Even if you did blackout for a bit.
Think of it as a brain reset.
It works on computers.
Maybe that knock on the head
Kickstarted something important right?!
Happy birthday anyway!
Sorry about the cricket thing…
