I stopped to hear the wind
sound its pursuit
around my ears.
(mouth tingling vaguely).
on being young
As one who’d
life’s lonely treadmill
(even in their emptiness)
yet such times
(The poem above sprang from a few unused old lines.
Left on scrap paper when I was 21.
They reasserted themselves before me:
as if discontented with their 42 year oblivion.
Seeking a return to the light, at last.
I felt driven to rework them, into this.
Strange being a poet sometimes.
I hope you think it works?)

Meant to publish this during December, but got hit by another flu-type virus
(alongside my usual chronic illness) through the festive season.🤒
Totally sapped energy for contacting others.
And when the phone actually rang, on Christmas day, I felt too unwell to answer it.
Reinforcing the isolation.
So passed my 28th Christmas alone.
Anyway, with luck, none of you can top that,
for sheer dreariness?
