Second Letter (poem/repost)

Second Letter

you’ve been back

in this country a

year now & still I

wait to see you

all I have received

is a letter telling me

you did the St. James

again with some friends

you made overseas I

remember when we did

that same track together

tramping through matagouri

thickets & cold swollen

streams where I kept losing

my footing but you were

always there ensuring I

didn’t get swept away

tumbling down mountains

to the sea

I need that –

someone who is there

to catch me & grab hold

before I fall

I was planning to work on the next installment of Dumb Vampires, but I’ve been sick with food poisoning, and spent the last day resting as much as I could. While it’s not the first time I’ve had food poisoning, it’s the first time I’ve done it to myself (and someone else) 🤢

On the plus side I am feeling better than I was…

Please donate! 🙂
