Relationship by Dan Pounds

I have a love-hate-love-love-hate-love-hate-hate-love-hate-love-love-hate-love-love-love-love-hate-love-hate-hate-love-hate relationship with language, he said, looking out of the kitchen window absently.

She tried to laugh but her face was drugged with capitalist anguish & depression. Outside the house seagulls swooped then gathered into a restless group on the roof, constantly twisting and bickering.

This poem was published in Glove poetry magazine #8 in August 2021. With thanks to the Editor Ian Cusack.
