Creative Coping

In the park

Two times me:

One here with cake I didn’t want

Already consumed,

One there, in the future

Maybe, or now, if I let her,

A better her.


This cafe’s by the the lake-

For longer than a cake

And a cup of lemonade

I’ve sat and thought,

Watching people pass,

Making what they can

Of squirrels in the rain-

Nowhere to go but round the lake,

Past swans and reeds



Heart, rain and ribs

Hear the thud, thud of my heart ,beat,

With the pitter patter of night rain

Racing through thin air

Soaking the summer soil

Chasing my blood to feed

My ribs’ teaming cargo .
