when i was a child
grandma sang to me
in gaelic …
today i cling to words
i never understood

  when I reach her room
to collect the laundry
the radio's on
as if some kind soul knew
how lonely it would be

    ... and then
in the spare room
of the dog lover's house
a child's pram
full of dog biscuits

out of the long grass
the cat pounces
at nothing …
I will seize the day

before the window
I try her bra --
to be or not to be
that is the question

    I too believed
in the way to a man's heart
my ex phones
wants an easy recipe
to impress his new boyfriend
