I don't need a Revelation.


So you push, drag, shout, revolt.
I sit at home and watch.
My new book is very good,
The only reason I
Haven’t really done anything in days,
I’m busy.

A few hours of solitude,
like weeks.
Can’t stop the nostalgia for
The long nights spent
Drunk or bored,
With someone.

I can’t let go until
I move on and I can’t move on
Until I leave.
Angry with your nonchalance

The decisions weren’t well
Informed, hindsight is an unwanted gift.
The pink shirt was a better deal than the black,
The manager a greater asset than the state
But things can’t change so there’s
No point in a revelate.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
