that song

Lovely use of a combination of prompts to create inspirational verse

Sadly Waiting for Recess

what was that song that Chrissie Hynde sang?
you know the one – was that a Nick Lowe song?

or was it written by somebody else? – I can’t remember

I found the fence I had carved our initials in
the deadwood, because you wouldn’t let me carve

a symbol of our love into a living tree, not even just the bark

that should have been a give-away right there, the deadwood
a foreshadowing of our relationship, and now down to the beach

where I scrawl my hate in the sand for the waves to wash away

then I sit here at night on the edge of the dunes
staring at the faint stars amongst the coastal fog

touching the silver leaves, listening to the breakers
