Love in the Wrong Place

Love in the wrong place

I feel it as hunger

and answer it:

a chocolate bar dipped in a jar of peanut butter,

a punnet of strawberries and cream,

breakfast in a nice cafe;

salty macaroni with blue cheese later -

5 stars, I tell everyone, you must try it.

Luxuries I can't afford

fuelling my late night

scribbling marathons

I gain weight on my unswayed hips

you're looking well, love -

all the while my heart is shrinking, shrinking,
