Si Philbrook

the list of things you’ll only do once

some moments are unique
tweek your memories and they fade
jaded by repetition,

losing my virginity, oh god,
honestly, don’t make me remember
a fumbled tumbled relief…”at least that’s out the way”,

going to my grandmother’s funeral
unusual weather is all I remember
tears and rain and tears…just muddled,

posing for the life drawing class
some arse I lost a bet to made me, and yet,
you know it kind of turned me on,

that abseil horror, and I hate heights,
but somehow found myself
two hundred feet high…why?

that first kiss with her, anita,
love is nothing
until you’ve kissed the one

some things

don’t come around
