‘Sitting at a laptop creates an image that I carry back.’ (Jay Cool)
A neck with a thousand folds.
A bump harboured by an anxious nose.
A line, puckered into peaks and troughs, of 48 years near gone.
It is not me.
Just an image.
An image of another me in another time.
Not me now.
Now, I write myself into being –
smoothing out the lines and carrying them
