THE WORLD ENDED AT MIDNIGHT

The ceiling of my favourite Turkish restaurant Twice a week I go down to the café for a free breakfast, usually the eggs Benedict with mushrooms on the side that I’m addicted to, and as ever the old fool – I’ll not name – gives out his working man’s academic view of the world. Like

COUNTING STARS

‘Those Who Stayed Behind’ One time on a moonlit night You sat there counting stars Asked me how it was that heaven Was on the other side of Mars Darkness, I can’t do without you Self-doubt, that’s much the same I’ve lost myself inside of Pan’s shadow A place where life is just another pointless
