Early Morning Heartburn


This morning I woke at just after two o’clock with terrible indigestion.
While I sat in the living room, feeling angry with myself for eating a second helping of lasagne with garlic bread and suffering the consequences, this verse erupted onto the page.

“You don’t have to look far”,
my Grandma always said,
“to find someone wishing,
they were in your shoes instead”.
