can I ask a question?
It’s not a tough question
and, in the end, not really about you.
It’s more about me.
No need for anyone who’s ‘lost’ to knock or ring today
but can you help me notice please,
have I got a grip on everything?
You know! Like car keys,
trousers, glasses, diary
and how many times,
between now or then,
closed or open,
will I recite my tiny questions?
