Hothouse Flower

by grimbeau

Dong! Wednesday afternoon
schoolbell tolls for double English.
Today is plot and backstory.
Immersion in what-if’s and why’s
Tedious causality
What makes your characters click
Or does it, really,
does it make them stick?

~
Gaze out through translucent glass
Deserted whitewashed goal posts
Abandoned summer sandpit
Railway green rough shrubbery
Tops of posh detached
four bedroom dwellings
Cinereal heavens

~
The hut is stifling
Oil central heating
Fit for Kew Garden
Hothouse water lily pond
Encased in wrought iron glass
Tempting setting for
Clandestine assignations
Ruffled purple crinolene
