You could have a big dipper   

micro plastic sunset no.5 by Simon Alderwick



of course, every other romance

started with a walk down 2

the creek, thru a rapid field

setting off allergies,

while she asked a lot of questions


4 her mother, a tired piece

wrung out like a drying cloth

as if 1 day we'd share the

memory as R kids shone

from behind fridge magnets.


of course, these days we R

digital. R kids write code

whilst we crack jokes, disguising

awkwardness 4 IQ. hunger 4 hurt.

R battles a shopping trolley sunk.
