Most ignored words fade.

Deep breaths and a cold shoulder.

Transient discomfort.

transient discomfort
the cold concrete stuffing of
high street mattresses

High street mattresses.

The pavements thick with summer

reluctant to leave.

Reluctant to leave
Post holiday blues set in
The sun burns my skin
I am not a number ... I am a FREE man!

The sun burns my skin
but I'm not warm anymore.
Your touch leaves me cold.

Your touch leaves me cold,
stripped of colour, leaf, then life,
waiting for the spring.

waiting for the spring
mist suspended, cold iced air
buds frozen on vines

Buds Frozen on vines
Stock up the wood pile before
Winter crashes in
I am not a number ... I am a FREE man!

winter crashes, in-
distinct skid marks on black ice
dark, frozen moments

Dark, frozen moments

released from their confinement.

It's time to listen.

It's time to listen
Old shows sound great on blu-ray
Watch without mother.
to be totally honest... whenever you feel you really shouldn't write that, that's exactly what you should write.

Watch without mother
recall Bill and Ben, Trumpton;
childhood memories
I am not a number ... I am a FREE man!

Childhood memories
can hold such a huge silence.
Our little secret.

Our little secret
Awkwardly carried by two
One colossal weight
to be totally honest... whenever you feel you really shouldn't write that, that's exactly what you should write.

his master’s silence

a broken metatarsal
no football for him
I am not a number ... I am a FREE man!

the transfer window

locked against the loosened leaves,
lets the late sun in

Lets the late sun in
and the Indian summer heat
postpones the Autumn
I am not a number ... I am a FREE man!

postpones the Autumn,
prorogues the Coronation
until we say 'yes'
