Morning poetry 5th January 2016

working
with twenty kids
aged five to eleven
all she can hear is bickering.
Headache.

bin day
the dog tips over the kitchen bin
cat food packets

movie night
reduces us to tears
"The Danish Girl"
I wonder if my ex
will ever watch it

stress test
in the martial arts class
crowded bar scene

I perform adequately
blocking instinctively
striking to disable

cavalier wristlock in seconds

He wants what he can't have.
