I’m splashing in the puddles the air is so clean – is the air always this clean? the other people don’t seem so excited but this is my first day ever of splashing in the puddles, in the daylight after rain.

Hang by John Campbell

posted in: Poetry 2012 | 0

hey just to hang when something is said, not to run in the cave and delve and check instead to hang, chill, wait until maybe my NT stuff will give something back, maybe not I find myself laughing, all the time.

I’m happy. I might be in this game.
