Together, poem by Tim Train.


I was having my fun together
When I heard a watcher moan,
But you can’t have fun together
When you’re standing on your own.

I knew his words were true then,
It stung me to the heart;
So I sadly left myself there
And I had my fun apart.

Tim Train lives in Lalor, on the outskirts of Melbourne. He was an MC for long running poetry reading Dan Poets, and is an MC for their successor reading Cherry Poets. Over the years he has read all over the world in pubs, clubs, trams, and other, stranger places. His book, ‘Hangover Music’, was published in 2018 by ‘Ginninderra Press’, and he has, somewhat improvidently, made and published many zines, including ‘Ramblings’, ‘Love songs of the socially distanced’, ‘Ollie the Octopus’, ‘The Lacker Band’, and ‘Thing’. Out of frustration with the ‘100 word artistic biography’ genre, he once wrote a 100 word artistic biography with one word so long that it takes over a hundred pages to print and several hours to say. This is not it.
