Bombshell

by grimbeau

Bad rubbish goodbye
Never no good at it ever
Stare out plush hearthrug
Such sweet sweet sorrow
(Axminster willow pattern
coolie on rickety bridge)
Observe the niceties now
Wistful sly shy smiles
Get what I mean—no?
Take your hands out of my hair
Wipe off that ghastly
Smirk

Words don’t come my way
‘goo-goo ga-ga…tee-hee, aargh’
Is that the time already?
Smash hideous accidental vase
Water and flowers splosh
Vandalise bucolia
Salt, white wine vinegar
Soon be as right as rain
Now’s your chance to scarper
“Ciao”
