Encore

I am nothing
In this play
Just the hand working
Backstage
A shadow on the side
Biding my time
In this performance
My cheering encore
More, baby… more!
With a hope that sometime
One night
You’ll pull me in
Your spotlight.

Give Me a Distraction

Behind these shades
I’m crying on the train

With music and crosswords
I attempt distraction
but my mind is set to
Rewind, replay

the events of the day
Regrettably
how my heart aches.

Fire Engine

am defined –
You prefer the blond
enough that
I cried this morning
For a colour long lost
To an impulsive
Friday night
When I thought
Fire would better
My sense of self
And now bitter –
I am floating
On a haze
Of the days
Coming
My misery
Defined
For all the world
To see
The colour
I used to be.
