empty pockets

our art dissolves the stone

it’s important not to

attach too much importance

to individual items of clothing…

…having said that

i felt so let down by this jacket

so much promise

so little value

sprouting holes after only a year

(if that)

and i tried to put it away

but you know how it is

you find yourself suddenly awake

on the morning tram

and you’re wearing it again

only one pocket usable

enough room for essentials

ipod and headphones

to keep me in this waking dream.
