short forms 20th February 2016

how soon
will she make it
to her sweet sixteenth year?
Fifteen can last forever if
she's dead

ripples of pavement ponds
the aftermath of rain
crushed crocuses

coming soon
a novel about young mums
with no expectations
not so much a fantasy
as a kitchen sink drama

less exciting
one side of my face
still droops
oddly, I can smell candy:
hot pink swizzles
and orange refreshers
and my toe, agonising

Health concerns. Time for living wills
