Poetry for Valentine’s Day by Finola Scott

lips finola scott sm

long-distance love

through    dark      your voice slips
trouble-thick with exams rent       partner
too far away in miles      and years
to kiss      to make better

too far in years  and miles
I spin a bright cat’s cradle
of words      to hold you      soothe you
but       meaning       cracks
the         line  is              bre          aki
ng    up

Thin ice

I say yes     but     not my idea
of grown-up fun     an outdoor ice rink
he pitches low      desire is     offbeat
svelte racy       padded anorak      he’s not
my usual but      I fancy him so
let him      take me
on to neon ice slush
swirl twirl   kick that beat   my heart
hop-flips      his hot leathered hand      presses
my woolly waist      yes      my choice
he can       take me
