Love Makes Her Frown

more work for her.
Always afterwards
she
strips the bed,
changes the sheets,

puts stained sheets
in the wash, hangs
them on the line
or clothes horse.

On ferries or in hotels
his jewellery catches
on hers, hours disentangling
earings, repairing necklaces.

All Seventies men
were sexy sweat
and thin as sticks.
She calls herself
“a cold mortal”.
