August air freshens

August air freshens
reminding me where i am
new – this same old turn

A. H / K. H-H (22 August 2018)

despite repeated magpie warnings

acknowledged to the full
she ploughs on with the unsayable
righting the unwritable
untying inextricables
pointlessly reciting litany of error
catalysed by infidelity
he just would not see
so rewinding to potentials
before this hidden crippling
seeking another opportunity
losing all that’s left

A. H / K. H-H (11 June 2018)

writing of the past

writing of the past
neither prophecy nor cure
fault then repeated
grief given crocodile hues
there is nothing i can do

A. H / K.H 11 June 2018
