Common Sense

My family will say something

And within a year if that

It will be a fact

It might be that legwarmers are coming back

Or about genetic memory

Or about a U-turn in politics


Smoking a fag at a back door

Or some beer garden

At a christening or a funeral

Just like that

If you say something is real

Then it is


My family will say something

And within a few seconds

It matters

A small comment

A concerned throw away thing

Just like that


My family will be something

And within a lifetime

That is what I am

A look, listening

A furrowed brow

Staring at the distance

During an epiphany

On genetic memory

Political agenda



◄ It's not easy being green.
