John had
Great Big
Waterproof
Boots on;
John had a
Great Big
Waterproof
Hat;
John had a
Great Big

Mackintosh–
And that
(Said John)
Is
That.

Stretch, Dream, Fall

25/11/2008

My arms are too short to reach my goals.

My imagination outshines my abilities.

My aim is true; my arrows are bent.

I see in the morning but am blind by evening.

I fill my mouth with more than I can swallow.

My dreams are sweet; my nightmares true.

On land, I stumble; but in the water I am beautiful.
