 Thank you to Roger Waldron for your poem this week.


Invite 


inviting me round 

to talk over   your 

world beating veggie lasagna 

you apologise for the kitchen 

careful   don’t stick to the floor   


we talk about 

being married 

that B&B in Scarborough  

where they asked  if we wanted 

dessert   which turned out 

to be Pears in sticky Rice Pudding 


you asked 

if we’d ever be a pair 

again   you asked if I would like

pudding  afters  etc 

I declined all 3    careful not to stick 

to your floor   wondering  

what makes  you think like that
