Unprepared, you made the tea
your hair towel-bound
I couldn’t wait to get started.
What was that half diminished again?

We pause for biscuits and mark time.
Liszt on the wall and cushions on the bed.
I mapped your body
you unveiled your hair.

Flatmates complaining about my car blocking the driveway.
We hid in the loft all afternoon
leaning into the window sills.
