#Poem I Must Spend More Time Upside Down

Woke up this morning thumped and wrinkled
cast back to new-born blindness
Dodgem car collisions into fixtures and fittings
leave me shocked but bruise-free
The dawn chorus is far too loud
but there are no birds

Don’t disturb my wakeful slumber
Don’t bother me with questions
Do not disavow me of my illusions
Let me avoid circumstances which shatter fantasies

I don’t want to upset nature with my inner vacuum
but I’ve got nothing to do
I might as well go and mope the boredom round town
like I was a teenager
like I was the Child that Santa Forgot

I stay out until dark

When you’re lost in the night
they’ll show you stars
then sell you constellations
