Companion in the immediate frame

not the best driver
likely not the worst
thinking on how you have
confused me
infuriated me
saddened me

Give me that fuckn list
I will tick all the emotions off
except that one

You have left me
behind in the thick of it
ploughing up the uncertainties
baked into biscuits what I didn’t get right
door to door
you went with me
offering discounts on each crumb de more or less

The radio distracts
like it always does
friendly little music
my own private diversion therapist
A lot of emotion can be played over the music that we want

Immediate companion
I know your name
the secrets you have
I make this promise to love you a little more
bicker with you less
as the time on my face imparts the stamp of another year

I could eat you out
Drink you under the bridge
Leave you cold
Be a stone to the heat burning in the want of needs

I would write of a giggle this minute
if it would truly echo the smile in my thoughts
All that I have done to you, my immediate companion
in this such is life parade of escapades and pageantry
Still there is no malice
never this
no sharp pricks from the inside of my eyes
driving home the best foot intention

The immediate is you
and we are here as we always are
I see you
I see me
I understand you/me a little more this day
Happy Birthday I say to me
don’t count the candles it doesn’t matter any more…

Artist's Description

No, today is not my birthday but it will be one day.

I know we should seize the opportunities we have to be ‘real’ in our lives.
Well that is all very well but it can be really hard to do at times…
So just going back to basics and seeing the person in the rear mirror and saying hello.
