more rain
spattering over the primroses
dog urine

Another night in A&E
this time with acid in my eye
(self inflicted, by mistake)
just as I was recovering
from the bleach-in-eye incident.
Three lovely nurses
irrigating my eye
one shaking in horror
at the facial invasion
while the most experienced
holds open my lids
like a clockwork orange
anaesthetic, saline, dye
all pain
though the ph is seven
