Poems

while I was with her

it broke the light switch in the bathroom
below the living room window
it scabbed off the wall
the damp advanced 
it rotted the wooden windowsill in the living room
with less frequency I washed the female dog  
the cooker began to leak gas 
it cracked the plastic dial for the front left hob
it split the toilet seat that I never replaced 
I still pee sitting on the cold porcelain
while I was with her I mended nothing
