Ruth Walters Poems
A little hot gossip
"She brushed her lips by his so gently for a thrill, and when he didn't flinch it spurred her on.
The toe bone's connected to lush grass, early mornings, bird song The heel bone's connected to you,
If I were a flower
If I were a flower my petals would be fading now, drooping and withering in the early summer but if by chance you glanced my way to warm me through, watered my weakened frame to give me strength,
A cold bed
Cold insecurity now slept on, feels sharp in the morning light.
Her problem was tough, kind of dark and impenetrable. So she decided to drill him, made a hole,
Lulu loved the butterflies, she'd try to pick them up. They were so full of colour she couldn't get enough.
Pool balls, snooker balls, footballs, squash balls, potting into pockets, kicking into goals. Always out at matches, evenings, weekends never any time for anything but balls.
A small grey box
It was a small, grey box, seldom noticed, with a little silver key.
A dolls eye view
Dolls sit among the cushions as though they are waiting for her. Their porcelain smiles, fixed, their eyes wide, a cobalt blue,
Sieving And Seizing
Sieving flour, creaming butter, she mixed sadness with vanilla, as she added cream of tartar and began to feel much better.
Let's Banish Time
Time passes too quick but only in retrospect for as we travel through it goes slow, crawling,
The radio plays Sunny afternoon, it's The Kinks
Mars V Venus
It was a cold morning for Mars, he couldn't get through to Venus who was in the kitchen slamming cupboards.
1 A lump of old metal
It was a lump of old metal, a car with no heart cocooning him, purring through back lanes,

A little hot gossip
"She brushed her lips by his
so gently for a thrill,
and when he didn't flinch
it spurred her on.
She wore a low cut dress
to show a glimpse of breast
and we saw a bead of sweat
run down his brow.
Then she lifted up her hem
to show her stocking top
and when his fever grew
she called him shocking! "
"Well you know she's just a cow!
She ignores the fellow now,
I saw her out with Fred
when we went shopping."
