• I had laundered my heart with my underwear
  • Without fabric conditioner
  • Till it was dry and bloodless
  • Like pants that have seen too many Sundays.
  • I nearly threw it away
  • Thinking, I can get another one off the internet
  • Or from Waitrose
  • With home delivery.
  • I found you in the final rinse
  • Like Lenor Ultraconcentrate
  • Which I never thought worked, you know
  • Not on pants like that
  • And we went round and round together
  • Swelling the soft muscled walls
  • Till I couldn’t look after it any more
  • And I had to ask you to do it.
