  • Such an ugly feeling that won't leave.

My favourite poet died three days before Valentine's.
She was taken but shaken by disbelief
that not all was as it should be.

No support network
save the few words she could turn to
when winter wouldn't end within,
playing games with them.

Selection and indecision,
when all the major things have been decided
except where to place a comma,
or if majestic purple is a match for Prussian metal?

Silky, spiked helms.
A war was fought here long ago.

Oh Dear, don't bake
that dish anymore.

The children could not pretend.
