What is worry?
Is worry the length of your fingernails
or the presence of a cuticle?
Is worry the threadbare cuff of a jumper
or the button held on by a thread?
Is worry the bleeding lip
or a balding head
or is worry a sleepless night
and a blacked out tomorrow?
Worry is what you say it is
it's whatever you tell them you feel.
Because only you can feel the worry inside
when the dial tone carries on ringing…
