Waiting Rooms

You're not qualified enough
by your distrust of cocaine
and an ageing disinterest
in disreputable bedrooms

Stay in - keep it straight
and look after your kids -
make sure good things
happen on time for them

whilst others party
wearing white moustaches -
All those kissing cousins
bringing elephants into

relatives . . .

The Loose Path

Seeing our lover despondent and in crisis, in tears and unable to cope can reassure us that,for all their virtues, they are not alienatingly invincible.Alain de Botton

Those seven slabs lie - unevenlyspaced on the gravel path

cheaply formed concrete . . .
