situations

there are two, said the man, in the corner of the morning
there are two made of memories and spice
take a look around and I swear you’ll see no better
half of one is well worth twice the price

so I clumped to and fro through the log-jams and the labels
past the ruby trees where you once hid
silence was my gift, from the days of lust and laughter
but carefully I closed that open lid

lenticular and obtuse, somehow still the story
swirled in pretty bubbles round my head
back I went to see the man in the corner
only to discover he was dead

two of them he’d said, but neither seemed to be there
so I put my money back into my purse
situations alter, so do circumstances
unfortunately always for the worse
