Stare Straight Ahead

I know you have problems son

But today I’m staring straight ahead

I’ve been practicing my whole life

And soon I’ll be able to see forever

Don’t wash my windscreen

Don’t try and tell me a joke

Don’t juggle balls

Just don’t

I’m perfecting staring straight ahead

One day, I’ll be able to see the other side of you

Amongst other things, I’m working on a book of poetry about growing up in South Africa. This is one of the new poems.
