It’s time to leave this house
all ragged and sore
I’ve lived here too long
it’s not me anymore

Though i laughed here once
it was a long time ago
Before the roof caved in
and i wanted to go

The rooms are all hidden
in the dirt and the dark
And somewhere inside here
the black eyed dog barks

If i can just find the way
i shall take it for sure
I shall leave this old  place
and deadlock the door

I’ll walk down the street
and look back just once more
To see where i lived
and what it’s all for

The shortest day

The shortest day
two cats, with staring eyes
and a hoover.

The shortest day
with grey rain, pale skies
an electric fire

The shortest day
half gone, half to go
a long night coming

The shortest day
lychee tea, chocolate
a comfy chair


They start drifting in
I push them out
They try again, a little more urgent
I push them out

They beg to get my attention
It’s working
The kettle is on
Now what?
