she #2

she hide underneath things we couldn’t see, collected stones and gave them names

she reenacted civil war battles with Lego man stolen from warehouses –

– warehouses that existed in new postcodes where managers had wires and plotted happiness on bar graphs

she never watched films that stared aliens the thought of life on other planets scared her

and she knew he was cheating sending correspondence to relatives ex-classmates and retired magicians

she never read the small print
she just gave her heart away and now she cries droplet after droplet
dripping dropping droplets
filling the ashtray
