4th Form Human Reproduction

What really bedded down
in his cellular memory
was the sunny couple


in the surf –
he flicks water at her
she ducks, in vain, laughing.

she is lying in a hospital bed
having a baby.

Roy kept a splash-length
from the girls.


Badminton, he decided
with a whole net in between
was much safer.
