Poetry Monash 89

My poem ‘Leaving Alone’ was published in Poetry Monash,
Summer 2014 edition.

Leaving Alone

A kiss
can lead to
two sleepy bodies –
one washing,
the other drying
dishes.

It can lead to
a whole rainy day spent
in the middle of nowhere
under the car
looking
for what went wrong …

A kiss
can still lead to
not knowing
who I am anymore
or who I was driving home to.

It can only lead to memories …

and I have enough to carry
without those.
