Love shouldn't be the well of your besieged sanity,
though you've always had a weakness for blondes
with black eye-brows. Why, she says,
when boson mutates into bosom, do both
o's have to change? Is it parity conservation?
You want to put your hand around her back,
like testing a hologram. You will remember
cycling home that night, seeing the glasshouses
in the Botanic Gardens glow yellow,
full of orchids and cacti, a cold beer
waiting in the fridge, your mouth watering.
