The Back Bedroom

A skylight at the end of a corridor
A mattress on the floor
A cold room where the afternoon sun
Can not seem pure

The skirting board bridges
Bare boards and white walls

We sit and talk
The twilight grows
As evening comes and goes
Intimate, but clothed
More memorable and easier to separate
Than a boring and dangerous love game
