Random Poem:


That glass cafetiere you gave me
On my first birthday, five years ago.
Well, it must have dropped as the washing-machine
        Remember how the whole room shook?
Was on it's final spin and
        That was a morning, though, wasn't it?
        You brought in coffee, in bowls,
        A rose, and that cafetiere
        And a poem.
I want you to be here
So I can tell you
It's broken.
