OVER UNCERTAIN SHOULDER
be careful what you wish for
he’d often shout
when they had a row
she’d shook him off
stood above wooden kitchen table
looking down on a map of domestic drama
she let short term sadness
decide
a decade’s passed since
unpacked suitcase full of battle words
back then she knew he had to tell her
it was over yet did not budge
had no desires
like an old lady munching
in a nursing home
now it’s a bit too late (28th December 2012)
