Mark Heathcote

Silver Star - 3,535 Points [none] (22/03/66 / Manchester)

My life as a small boat

I saw my life as a small boat
Pushed out of the reeds - carried
To who knows where it'd float
At first, in pure faith, it taxied

In slow currents of childhood
It, I drifted without questioning
The landscape on either shore
Running fingers along smooth plywood.
