Empirical evidence.

I think I have worn

these jeans too long –

the meetings I had today all

finished early.

Must clean teeth.

But the things I

have done in these jeans.

Must piss.

Tomorrow I will swim

in the ocean

have a hair cut

and put on clean clothes.

Must fix tap.

Everyone is going to bed

but I am still up.

The Japanese invaded

Singapore on bicycles.

Pythagoras said no


The wind has come up.

I think a change is

coming through.

I hope I can

get up and bring the

clothes in before it


Tomorrow was my

sleep day.

I think I will happily

lie in bed and listen to

the rain fall, with all

the windows open.

No one knows I’m here.

They think I am asleep.

I will go to bed soon

So I can get up and

make things better.


I still have a lot to

do; maybe I will eat.

Go for a walk, smoke.

Eat a tin of tuna

a tin of mixed beans and a

banana and then to morrow

I will be fit to work.

Hunger and cold

motivates us.

I will eat and then sleep in

an elevated bed.

If I sit very still

in my swivel chair

no one will notice


The cool change promised

is here now with it’s

winter blades.

Sydney is a suburb

of London.
