She pruned roses with a chainsaw

grows back fuller, better

learned it from an old man


You’re nuts andrew she said

she smiles

bet you make plastic planes, read sci-fi


Yeah sharne you don’t belong

constrained ex-army

all that drive, creativity




He sold spots in phone books

now to PNG you both

new kid, maid, barbed wire palace


He managed resorts, armed guards

two bullets in his back

put paid to it


You in divorce court

his attackers free

no more sushi on the boat


You were pruned

they didn’t grow

did you bloom

I just don’t know
