A neutralising discourse was

A neutralising discourse was
set by both sides – equal in a
way – how their pasts were –
those tipping imbalances of
mind – tripping of sex into a

partition for others – therapy
dragged back scabs & let his
blood bloom – it felt as if his
body could work – again – In
his mind he slipped away &

she found a happiness [a for
everness] – Do not look over
your shoulder to see clearly
what was there – regret slips
from rolling [untruthful] lips

on naked skin – men will win
& keep breaking frail things –
see where history has dug a
shallow scar – see it fade [as
time] – but not by your eyes
