About Me

My photo
Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa
I am a white African. Contradiction in terms? I think not. Sometimes my blog will be serious; sometimes sad; sometimes irreverent; sometimes witty; always my truth simply written.

D.I.Y. Relationship

Dreamy eyelids disinclined
to acknowledge whispering clothes,
belt buckle snap,
creaking hinge,
engine roar;
silent echoes
ech-o ech-o
languid stretch,
sighing breath,
feet stumbling across the room;
bleary road map eyes focus.

Crisp money;
scribbled note;
“Buy yourself something nice -
happy anniversary,”
seeping sorrow.

Thanks to Jean Elmond of Facial Expressions Poetry Circle for rearranging this for me. He has given it life.
