Anthropology 2: art student

I lost my jacket, heels and case i left them way behind. I cut my hair and changed my spex, become another kind. I left the ranks of the well paid I missed the Budget speech, I said goodbye to 9 to 5… It all is out of reach. ‘These days I google concept art i…

Parked

I have an itch, I have a scratch I sometimes wonder if I can match My old ways, my triumphs, my career success. Will I ever, like I once did, get power dressed? My glories have gone now I’m off the fast track I’ve stepped down and slowed down I’ll never go back. But I…

Choose-day

Life is about choices, no? Tuesday’s are now Choose-days for me. I’ll choose to do one life-enhancing thing each week. Well, I’ll try. I might even save a cat in the process.

So predictable…
