GLISTENING WAVES

‘You never listen.’

Glisten. The sun dancing on the water.

‘You’re never there.’

Dare. The cold water round his ankles.

‘I’ve been having an affair.’

Stare. A line of rocks breaking the water in the distance.

‘The children will stay with me.’

Free. His body weightless in the water.

‘I want you out.’

Doubt. Arms and legs treading, tired.

‘It’s over.’

Drove her away. His head slips under the waves.

Listen, glisten.

The sun dancing on the empty water.
