Desires Of A Vacuum Heart

23/08/2017
Lemuel R.Griffiths

 'The vacuum Heart'.

Green car rolling.., 
Down my one way street, 
My ex neighbour.., 
Tinted screen.., 
Though one can just see through.., 
To he.., and the girl - 
She's an Ex, too.ha., some belle.

A'leaning from a first floor view o' the world.., 
Feeding pigeons.., gutter bread, 
The gulls 'pon the drive - 
A frenzy.,  with that wing clipping,
hungry for regime of sex and death and food without a start.., 
Everyone getting all they desire.., 
Desires of the vacuum heart.

He revs - angrily., 
Love diminishing with each and  every pedal push,
Diminishes., as does his inherited loot.

So.., why's the driver angry., 
At her beseeching, 
'Take this certain route?'
She looks up - 
Eyes lock,
I continue the feed.., 
The cooing, 'love and feed me' birds,
He revs - angrily., 
He's sensed her greed.

Two years of Fridays.., 
And still this derailed, bingo route.., 
Why look back., 
Why look back?
She killed me in a text, 
So why give even one hoot.,
The gulls will leave soon - 
Another winter looms.
