memoirs, art and fragments by Thomas Milner

Waiting for the results

Outwardly calm

Inward misgivings

Crawl up my spine

Coil round my neck

Worms of doubt.


Should be alright

Worse things

Happen at sea

Business as usual

Time waits for no man


But oh what joy

To freeze-frame the moment

And let the results go hang

At the edge of a dream

Waiting for ever.

  1. Is this about you MRI Tom?


  2. It’s a really good poem by the way! 🙂


  3. Tom, in addition to your book of poetry, I think you should be designing wallpaper and fabric! ~ Lily
