Gentleman seeks Lady Friend


Gentleman seeks Lady Friend

As salt upon a confiture of crescent moons
A man has placed an advert in the window
Glossy cars roll by full of principles and people

Helene offers massages, all kinds
I am sure the two would get on fine
If simple games of Patience were all that was required
A two-seater flowered sofa adds to the fire
Of unseparated connubial positivity
The sleet falls in soaking crusty patches
A man knocks over another’s coffee
Everyone is outraged
He apologises
Match point

Some match.
