  1. BRUISED, BEMUSED AND DISABUSED (A villanelle)

    Everything around me looks so very strange
    My poor heart has been through the blender
    Seems the only thing safe to trust is change

    Bells and vows and rings to exchange
    They’re playing our song: “Love Me Tender”
    Everything around me looks so very strange

    How sweet the fresh taste of each interchange
    An angel filling life with her beauty and splendour
    Seems the only thing safe to trust is change

    Drifted off, faded away, withdrew out of range
    Whatever I did would just offend her
    Everything around me looks so very strange

    Now I’m a box gathering dust at the post exchange
    And the Presley song is “Return To Sender”
    Seems the only thing safe to trust is change

    A vast empty chasm, a mountain range
    She’s gouged out then piled up to defend her
    Everything around me looks so very strange
    Seems the only thing safe to trust is change
