Loft Clearance

This month's winner of £100 School of Movement Medicine workshop voucher

By Hannah Mackay

Iím getting myself down out of the loft.

Brushing away the dust

Wondering if I need a new cover.

Iíve stored a lot of me

Away for safe-keeping

Unable to decide at the time

If Iíd need me again.

Iím getting myself down out of the loft.

I might be useful

I could pass myself on to a friend

Or use bits of me to make something new.

 

Iím getting myself down out of the loft.

No point leaving me up there

Til I die

Giving my executors the trouble

Of wondering what to do with me;

Whether I could go to charity;

Or be revived, re-upholstered

Given a new lease of life.

 

Iím getting myself down out of the loft.

But I donít want me filling up the house,

Creating clutter.

I need to decide if I still like me.

Find a place where Iíll fit

And enhance the general ambience.

 

Otherwise Iíll send myself to be recycled

To be stripped back to my constituent parts

Melted down

Burned up

And used again.
