my mothers lovers

I met a couple

those that strayed

into my view

they were not told as such

just friends

who came to stay

I remember the german guy

killed himself in his car

in the back alley

when that became over

who she said did that

as he was in love with my sister

who to be clear

we know who’s interests

do not lay that way

the fella year or two older

than me

with his secret smile

thinking he had a great deal

& me

wanting to not believe

but when

you get hit round the head

often enough

the learning stays
