How To Cut A Birthday Cake

I learnt to do this

The first birthday at boarding school

Flip the knife before the cake is cut

It becomes a less effective cutting tool

A long way from London

Sung to by circumstantial friends

A Three Wishes gateaux

Making nugatory amends

The sharp edge pointing skyward

Leaving the graft to its blunter twin

Marking with a shriek

When the knife’s gone in

The Boarder Line

Poems

Afterwards

Magnolia

A Support

The Library

It’s All There

My Heart Was Never Far Away

I’ve Taken To My Bed

Caunt

Cheap Crisps

Kerb Appeal

Not Fair

They’re Having An Affair

Choker
