Poetic Interruption III


If I could play a lost chord strumming it into existence

Perhaps sing through the scale better than perfectly

Or answer the unanswerable with amazing insight

If I could offer every last penny – leaving me none

Or stroke her hair with 100% affection

Climb a mountain without being out of breath

Slam a car door without making a noise

Eat a meal with no sleepy effect

Drink a litre of milk and forget I did

If I could arrive on time every time

Or hang the painting straight – straight away

Stand for hours without flinching

If I could…

I could be your friend –

couldn’t I?
