My Kathleen to her Sabine


You’re so black and white

In that check dress Sabine,


Under a watery sun

Saying KISS off ‘keep it simple stupid’

Me carrying unpacked complications

A display of who I am, and you

Not THAT at all, not at all,

Your relaxed pose, look how far up in the air that nose goes!


You know opposites attract Sabine,

On the chess board

Opposing colours move in close,

Close at hand,

‘Take’ each other

Ravage and remove

Till the king is dead,

Long live the lonely queen!

It’s not all black and white,

You hear me Sabine!

Her flipping me the bird, saying ‘Argh, Kathleen!’
