Dear Lolly,

This is inspired by (our very own) George Ttoouli.

 

Dear Lolly,

 

I plucked up the courage

to send her a message

using a networking site –

the type you hate.

 

It’s not like going to a door and knocking,

more like slipping a note under it saying:

‘I called but you were out,’

but without calling first.

 

I’m in a great place creatively,

but after a week I’m still trying

to open my fridge from the wrong side

and my pears all ripened at the same time.

 

I know you how much you like your metaphor,

but I really love a ripe pear.

 

Thanks for the advice.

It was a stroke of luck

that I got a washing machine drum

and, you were right, it makes a perfect furnace.

 

I left her my best wishes

then wrote a bear into my next piece.

It didn’t attack anyone

but, psychologically, the damage was long-term.


(Inspired by Static Exile, George Ttoouli, 1979 – )
