Tuesday 11 March 2014


Jealousy, weeping green, fresh as tears,
chlorophyll smelling from the sappy wound
leaking pain of loss. Agitated veiny green.
Return my love to me.

Congealing envy compacts; folding bitterness,
sadistic neglect and bile, turns from green
to yellow, dark brown, sharp,
rancid with want and intent.
The air turns old, murderous.
