Thirty years ago today
I wandered blinking and terrified
Into a studio in Didsbury

Ten and a half years later
I staggered blinking and terrified
Out of their office in Sale

Twenty years ago
I sat convinced I'd made a huge mistake
Outside a ghastly factory in Ashton

Ten years after that
I staggered blinking and terrified
Towards another great unknown

These days I sit
Anxiously in another grey studio
Wondering if I've done my bit

Thirty years pass by
In the blink of several
Million mouse clicks

The blink of an eye
Is it time to try something else
Or nothing at all

MAWH, December 2017
