Someone Else’s Window

Outside someone else’s window the neighbour’s wife,

in breakfast-crusted robe and last year’s Christmas present

slippers

steps out onto the balcony,

dragging

the laundry basket full, heaping, overflowing. She can

barely

lift it to the railing where it tips,

dumping

raining through the air

all her husband’s dirty laundry. As it

flutters

to the street below, amongst shirts and socks and boxer shorts

I see. I understand.

She’s not the type to wear

a leopard print thong.

I bake. I write. What goes better together than a good story and a delicious fresh-baked pastry? Nothing. And I can give you both. Grab a hot cuppa and join me.
