Title: Trivia

I sit here in my home
surrounded by well-loved artefacts.
Trivia with meaning.
A life’s story snapped at intervals
with cheerful nonchalance.

What of women in Japan?
No home. No trivia,
No memories to hold, to see.
No loving arms to bolster pain.
No whisper in a heart-sore ear.
Just an icicle imbedded
in a frozen heart.

I sit here
with love alive and close.
The trivia of my tears
washing - futile - over a guilty ocean.
