Bankruptcy

Grief is costly and I was broke, 
Not you or him or any bloke,
Could have filled my pot of casting love,
He pulled my purse-strings from above.
That heavy weight of stress I threw,
I shrunk and stole myself from you.
That constant stream of words that played,
For them, a fortune I'd have paid!

Blackbird

Doing a deal with grief
'give me today, you can have tomorrow

a black bird
trapped in a glass house
clattering to get out
