Tainted Garden

With his words
he taints a spring day …

Leaf tips brown
on a plant half planted
slap dash.
His beloved ivy is killing the fig
and the cypress.

“Foul play” he declares
“Fred Flintstone,
the neighbour
is at it again!”

His eyes reptilian
snake into his wife’s …
her insides shake
while he rants …

“Just look,
you, you notice nothing!”
An intake of breath,
He’s coming over and poisoning
my garden”another intake of air,
“I’ll catch him one day
and then everyone will believe me,”
and the ivy continues to creep,
strangling all in its wake.
