GRAEME FELTHAM
blocks

blocks are my friends
because like me blocks aren't necessarily blocks
you can round around the block
sit on a block that's a roundabout and go roundabout and roundabout
make words with alphabet blocks
you can even blink
and block out the pain you can't
maybe draw the curtain for a while, maybe and yet maybe not yet, nyet
but that doesn't block it out
blocks are my friends
and it is this block to blocking pain
that is why I am still breathing
