Sarah Maria Griffin

Found Months Later
(he can’t remember it happening)

As I lay fully clothed in the bed at 3am
I called to you as you undressed the wrong way
Bring me the custard creams from the kitchen
Please I need them
You go, t-shirted bare legged comedy
Then return with the long yellow packet
In your tequila hand
I say give them to me
You throw them
And they crack against my pissed head

Not too hard but we are laughing then
You join me horizontal
I eat just one
I am your biscuit black-eyed gir
You have salt and lemon on your shirt

Take it off
