Next Door

snowy afternoon
children's voices carry
from next door
Sheila
new year's fireworks
light the path
Mark
cobwebs
on a pile of books
in the cellar
Yu
the family crest
on a platinum brooch
Sheila
seeds swell
in a glass of water
under the waxing moon
Mark
a monkey pirouettes
on Buddha's birthday
Yu
*
who will meet
the beggar's naked
knowing gaze?
Sheila
'laser lipo
finance available'
Mark
grandpa's road map
went for 600 pounds
at auction
Yu
I'll think of you
while bushwhacking
Yu
she responds
with nothing but kisses
and a smile
Mark
sinking deeper
into each other
Sheila
his iPhone
has failed to ring
for two days
Yu
woodpecker taps
a quiet morning
Mark
a wonky wire trolley
rests beneath
the harvest moon
Sheila
am I late again
for the hayride?
Yu
*  
the smell
of embrocation
hangs in the air
Sheila
parasols shimmer
in waves of heat
Mark
you don't have to
wear uniform
to go to school
Yu
my favourite lamb
is the black one
Sheila
a loaded brush
gently follows
the curves of camellia
Mark
another paper carp
rides the wind
Yu
