Empathy is
not your
Strong suit.

Be kind.

Her hair covered

Her head down 

A baby in the push chair 

Not one familiar place around.

 

The shop girl served her,

Speaking loud and slow 

The lady understood 

What their was to know.

 

I sensed a patronising tone,

As the shop girl spoke 

The lady didn’t realise 

The condensation invoked.

 

The man with the tattoos

Stared and screwed up his face

Take a Penny, Leave a Scar.

I'm just a number,
Put me in the back.

'The Lady of the House

Whom he loves'

within these ruined walls

loved
played
laughed
cried
worked

- died

long gone now
only dust remains
yet carved painted stones
bring testimony
of your life
and warmth
down through the years
and suddenly
you are almost
