When I First Met Him I Said ‘There’s No Way This Will Last’

When I First Met Him I Said ‘There’s No Way This Will Last’

written by: Sally Armstrong

 

We were damaged
like parcels all worn at the edges
with brown tape
all curled up

We smoked roll ups
sipped pints of cider in pubs with no name
while we unpacked
each other

We flew to Amsterdam
saw ‘Sunflowers’ in Van Gogh’s museum
ate green Thai
all dressed up

We bought our own place
Derek Jarman’s garden moved us
to plant seeds
make roots
