Case Number 5


Mary admired Peter
and Saul wanted
Bob and Janice who
loved the inside of her head
sat apart watching
Mary and Sam and their two children
watching Peter and Helen
observing each other
while Brian who loved trees and solitude
watched a silent movie
playing behind his eyeballs.

who also liked observing
the slope of her nose through her eyelashes
by chance saw Saul
hugging Bob behind the piano
and gave up any pretence
of becoming familiar
with the interior of his mind
took a swift leap inwards
and landed in a corner of her brain
directly opposite Brian’s secret movie
knocked and entered his bemused smile
and then tucking the corners in
round her chin
put out the light.
