Cocktail Sticks

Duchess Theatre
28 May

Going back, the house
is quiet, dusty,
full of unlived dreams.

A sherry bottle
on the kitchen shelf,
a woman’s magazine.

These were the things
of your ambition:
parties, fitting in;

but now, without the hope
you had in them,
they are nothing.

Cocktail Sticks is performed as part of Untold Stories, which runs until 15 June at the Duchess Theatre
