From the collection published in 2020, Use All Your Eyes to See.
They set to it
as if the opportunity to argue
is what they live for
and doing it is heaven.
They give it heart and soul
dig into their positions
one balanced on the living room sofa
the other shouting from the dining room
the talking in low voices.
the dried tears on cheeks.
the sniffles into tissues.
The promises never to argue again
mutual and sincere
Their double biography
a parallel series of prizefights
the prize never being worth much
