Sue Birchenough



I’m bed

I’m bed
not wardrobe with my back against the wall

ladle not fork
breast stroke not crawl
lintel not brick
flagpole not vault
sweetcorn not wheat

I would like to meet a man    for swimming,
visits to ikea,
prefers public buildings to a pub (lol)
and is looking to buy a cottage    in a year or two

gluten intolerance   would be a plus
