Shadow Like

The shadow of a

Dwarf woman

Appears on the door

In the supermarket

The boy points and sneers

Like many times before.




I’m looking for someone

Dressed in black

Playing a guitar

Imagined making love with him

Let the lights dim

Let the music begin.


Rose Cottage

I can imagine

Roses at the gate

I can imagine

You walking up the path

I can imagine

Our fireside chat

I can imagine

The garden a blaze of colour

I can imagine

You picking a flower fresh with dew

I can imagine

The sparkle in your eyes

I can imagine

The Autumn bidding farewell to Summer

I can imagine

Saying goodbye to you.
