Sorbet

a time my mum told
me about
when, the first night

married n waking up
with my dad,
she understood that

beach boys song ‘god
only knows’
as it made sense;

a popstar’s lyrics
so distant
translated to her when

she was twenty-four
and half
asleep in the marital bed

and the next day
she says
they went shopping

in a white supermarket
(and alone
no parents or anybody

around) they bought
some lemon
sorbet for dinner
