in some ways

roundabout seven

she’d called to say

come round see you then

I’ll leave the door open

I was there at seven

well around about it

pushed the door open went in

& she was not there

the evidence of her was there

the usual mess bra’s on light-shades

the floor makeup scattered

mixed in with underwear shoes belts

magazines of how things should be

in some ideal home

I made myself a drink

flicked half-hearted at the articles

50 ways to improve your home

sex life tips

does he really love me? shit

took another look around & left

I was just another bit of her life

carelessly tossed to one side

did I ever go back?

oh yeah the sex was just great

I guess the magazines had helped her

in some ways
