So it's basically been a year since i've last posted anything, so let's see what happens this time!

She’s been sleeping for too long.
Not too much of an aeroplane.
That little book has done no wrong,
But mammy’s screaming “you’re insane”

She has a house up in Peru
Afar from where her tears accrue.
A happy haven through and through.
If only that were really true

It seems they’re locking her up again,
They’re calling her a stalker
She sends me every now and then:
“They’ve killed a professional walker”

I don't know why but the title of this poem and the last verse reminded me of a Smiths song, not a specific Smiths song, just that style. Like I said I don't really know why, maybe it's the tantalizing ambiguity of the phrase "professional walker", maybe it's the lyric nonchalance with which you write about insanity and misery. It's not important. I liked it is all. Would make a good song.
