Adler and Gibb

Royal Court Theatre
24 June

You broke the locks
and forced your way into a world
where you are not wanted.

Deep in the woods,
a house that once was love
and now is nothing.

Leave us alone here, the house
we built, the little bird
we grew, like trees

that creep now on the kitchen floor,
all gone. The work torn up.
Nothing to steal anymore but scraps;

nothing is left of her
but memories of wild, woodsy love
and mouldered bones.

Adler and Gibb runs at the Royal Court until 5 July
