holes...

i was once a small boy
with holes in the
toes and heels
of
my brothers
woolen socks..

i once cried in fear
with snots dangling
from a blooded
nose
whilst suffering from
another kick..

i lived all in my head
and tymes cruel
passage slow
to
assuage my
grief

iím better now, for sure
my brothers socks
are now darned
no more
the gaping holes
in my lyfe...

Graham...April..2004

there's this weird thing about holes and vacant spots. in an afghan for instance, of the crocheted variety, I've heard it told that the holes and vacants spots between the stitches actually trap the warmth, and that a blanket made in this way is actually warmer than one in a tighter stitch formation. same with those socks passed on down from your brother, they were a hole-y hell and yet, look what you built out of it. :)-anniepants (with holes in her dungarees, all pairs handed down by brothers three)

Graham, you've taken another pearl from the oyster. Darn those socks! Gosh darn them all to heck!
