by Michael Ashley

It has passed again
you bought me a card
with syrupy inscription
that looked a little odd
above your name

niceties done with
a kiss exchanged
we quarrelled our way
through just another day

no fancy meal
no scented bath
no moonlight walk
that evening
we retired to bed
just as we always have
and slept
with the dogs
between us

Michael Ashley is a 30 year old man who lives in Huddersfield. In between the humdrum of life and walking his dogs, he writes a little poetry.
