boiling blood...


deep breath linda
(in and out)
and exhale...

for 15 years i have
painted and repaired
literally all-sorts
to the point that i
have considered
chopping off
my right hand and
having a paintbrush
grafted in it's place

still i have paid my bills
through this activity
and whilst i resent
the time spent on
doing up delights
         instead of creating art
i accept that it is a
necessary evil
better than having a boss

sometimes
when the sun shines
i put stuff
out in my driveway
to sell

today some bugger
stole a bleedin cabinet
and 3 chairs

(and
i thought my
electricity
had been cut
due to late payment
phhheeeeeww
general powercut)

oh joy
not the only sucker to suffer
...
