Love’s Things

A free-verse poem

An old spirit level that was used in the late 1970s-early 80s, gifted to the author by her father. It sits on an upcycled shelf which used to be part of a wardrobe.

Love’s things are not ordered from lifestyle catalogues, with glossy photos of sun-kissed models draped across designer furniture, pretending to read.

Love’s things are picked up from the hardware store, in the wrong size, then taken back with crinkled receipts, rescued from dirty pockets, and replaced with what you meant, plus an apology.
