You created me
cut out folded paper
flocked pattern – bird in silhouette.
I crushed crimson your vagaries
your flaking effusive generosity.
Stripped you back bare
to the man who now cries himself to sleep.
When was it ever chiselled in stone
that we should erect foundations
Leave me spacious blank walls
same suitcase – different hall
Never to be unpacked
no offers accepted…
