Caroline Am Bergris




A ping-pong chat with a stranger,
dots join to form a picture –
his steering wheel will turn towards you.
However, you hear zero
and confide in doughnuts.

A ring from a friend marking twenty years,
you see a green light for the next thirty –
yet the cirque’s not worth a penny,
for she cycles on alone.

Put ‘tick’ on record but as for ‘tock’-
practise holding inference
like a foam bubble
in your hand.
