Home Edition for Word

Edit last night’s blazing row:

Delete the accusations flung
Cut the spat profanities
Paste in the file named Regrets

Undo the wakeful night spent hugging the mattress edge
Insert → Break
Format → Change Case

I’m sorry
Let’s talk

Save changes
Open new blank document

    This poem has had the biggest response of all my poems over the last 3 years.
    It’s in the Soundswrite anthology and was also one of the 12 ‘Wee Poems’ for Leicester’s Everybody’s reading week in Oct 2010.
