short forms 15th February 2016

house proud
wish fulfillment
the old house collapses
into an architect's shattered
dream home

under the motorbike
a nest of dry leaves
next door's cat

she takes
the 6:50 to London
every day
now she has anxiety dreams
about missing it

we go back
to Gran's house
after she died

old perfume
pervades the plaster
floorboards creak

is there anybody there?

child ridden. a surprising apt autocorrect.
