On the Bus

back from my girlfriend's
I get thinking about school
and where all the others from my year are

and what they're doing
and who they're seeing
and why I wasn't invited

Sunstroke in March is Weird

I drank a litre of water over the park
Maybe I should have sat in the shade

Reminds me of walking the coast, Pembrokeshire
raw sun, no clouds, no air pollution, no shade
nor any drop of water to drink
After 3 hours, I guess I was a little frazzled
but that was years ago

So difficult to learn all over again
recognise which mistakes are the ones
that take a long time to recover from

The number of cards in your hand
depends on the game
The card you lead with
or respond with
is another game
within the game
c'est tout
