liver

 

I hang out the washing 
at night.
 
Each peg squeaks 
into place.
 
You, in the kitchen light, 
warming my back.
 
 
I’m worrying again 
about your liver
 
as if it helps. 
I feel around
 
on you – which side 
is it? How big?
 
~
 
You have nightmares 
and kick me in your sleep.
 
Sometimes 
I kick you back.
