brighton bombshell

By R.J. King

Lacroix ties


Beneath my bladed hands.

China cups


Creating Dresden rain.

In the garden

Our marriage bed is ash;

Torched by Versace rags.

For fun,

I finger the $200 cheque

And smile while the toothless hoon

Glides by

In our purple Merc.

Yes, my dear.

It’s only just begun.
