I'm not the only Poet
Who prefers a heavier pen
I don't have the elegance
Or the truths of lighter men

I'm not the only Painter
Who looks away to see
What hides out at the edges
Not where beauty lives and breathes

It might take a while
It might take 10
I may have to make excuses
Perhaps certainly start again

But, for sure it will get done
And you will hold it in your hands
The Me, the Who I Am
The Ordinary Man

Clumsy often with my words
No moth flirting with the flame
But yes, recording lazy circles
And despite being lame

Travelling with deceptive purpose
A Life's Walk and a good one
Plenty to want to talk about
And more than some of it fun
