the hula-hoop
from my long ago childhood
still in the loft
used once and abandoned
I know how it feels

  make-up sex
no one notices
how a fly dies
on flypaper

    a moth
bounced off the walls
all night
I couldn't make sense
of my feelings

wishing I'd savoured
that last mouthful of childhood…
moments before
laughing at my reflection
in the bowl of the spoon

  years of letters...
the bridge between us
until it could no longer
bear the weight of lies
