An Overcast Day
When my lover got up, at dawn, it
rained, she went into the kitchen
and wrote a poetic shopping list
Egg, milk, butter and a fresh loaf;
coffee, marmalade a bottle of wine
muesli and low fat yoghurt.
She came back into bed and read me
the list slowly, till we sated fell
asleep in each others arms.
When we awoke it was afternoon
the list was a crumbled piece of
paper at the foot of the bed.
