90. The lie in. (20 June 15).

Some pieces take a lot of thought, some need a lot of thought to make them work properly, some don’t. Some pieces are just spur of the moment nonsense. So in the interest of trying to keep a blog ticking over the way a blog should, with regular contributions, see if you can guess which category this wee gem would fall into….


90. The lie in. (20 June 15).

My head and my heart are both sleepy and cosy
My arms outstretched and louche,
My legs are still comfortably numb,
My middle is the only one,
That wants to be moving,
Oh fucking hell,
Oh ouch,
So if I’ve gotta get up to take a piss,
When I’m done and I’m coming back to this,
I’m gonna come back with more coffee,
And be left off where I finished….

About Jim Laing

The Buddha said there were four kinds of people. Those who run from dark to dark, those who run from light to dark, those who run from dark to light and those who run from light to light. From a life going from dark to dark to having a few years running from dark to light, with scuffed hands and knees from sometimes falling, I may be getting the hang of it now. How it began is not now how it is, I need a quiet space, After the noise of the day, So I take sanctuary in the creativity, And my soul feeds, On sometimes dark, Sometimes light fantasy, And I dare like many to work, But stay up off my knees, To dream, perchance to suffer, But always still to dream. Here are things mostly lyrical and poetic, with nonsense sometimes, reviews and personal musings. The coffees hot and always black. The words not necessarily so.
