Tuesday 8th May

RED & GREEN:

She says,
“What are we going to do?”
There’s a loaded silence in the question,
Like falling off a cliff,
Like just before a car crash,
Like letting go,
But not,
He says,
“What? What have I done? I’m happy”
She says,
“No you’re not”
Then he realises,
She can’t see him at all,
She’s looking right at him,
But can’t see him,
He checks to make sure he’s not fooling himself,
Lonely?
No,
Planning devious mischief?
No,
Happy?
Yes,
In walks the cat,
Like a sign,
He says,
“Hello Cat!”
And the cat smiles
