Heartbroke

My new collection/pamphlet is called Heartbroke, it covers poems written over a 20 year period and it's published by Tambourine Press - so am going to put up some of the poems from the collection 1-2 at a time - here's the first one:

Hurling bricks

Each time we disagree,
fall out, row
you make me wrong
you make YOU right
then you save them up
all these wrongs
you ever thought I did
in a list
in your head
and when the next row comes
you hurl these bricks
one-by-one
to batter me down
until I sit

in a heap of rubble..
