played myself

cooking chunky soup

lemongrass carrots

green beans onions pak choi

celery bit of leek

I reached for the chillies

chopped them

& set for simmer

sat down with coffee to read

wait for the pot to roil

feeling my eyes tired

taught aching

& I thought of you

goodbyes in summer

ends

until I realised

I’d played myself again

washed my hands

rinsed my eyes

tried over
