You think that colour
You are taking off your nail varnish
the wheelie bin is full of torn-off wrapping paper
the plate of leftovers in the fridge will not be touched
we are full now.
Nothing will arrive in the post tomorrow
that's it for deliveries
your nice clothes are in the washing machine
ready to dry, then be put away.
When you don't get the telephone call you've been expecting
you start treating your phone differently
'let's spend some time in different rooms'
life is exhausting and you can't stop blowing up balloons.
