I'll write a poem every day, might be tiny but it'll be complete.


When she woke that night, she thought

now that I'm published, I must send

a couple of pieces to Dad in Thailand

of course he's not on Facebook

so he wouldn't have seen any

and they don't have internet out there

him and his new wife, beach bums

I can picture the thatched bamboo house

him lounging in the hammock

chickens pecking, a pig or two.

As she stood, she had another thought:

he would have been been 100 this year

and felt a drop of urine trickle down her leg

realising his birthday had passed, unnoticed, months ago.



Day 27 Forgotten

What dreams do to reality.
