Spins

Spins

The arrow spins, flicked in

A circle, part of the game

Passing the four pillars

Four houses, four rooms

Of love and hate

Rage and calm

Slowing, turning, this cold morning

And to rest, it sets the day

Layers

Layers

Unwrap these cloying sheets

That bind and bind

The layers of life, tarred and heavy

Clinging like an undignified break up

Or grease to the baking tray 

After Sunday lunch 

Where everything ended up in the bin

And another layer wrapped itself tightly round my chest
