Will You Not Ask Me In? - Poem by Mark Heathcote

Will you not ask me in?
My mollusc friend
We’ve all made lots of mistakes
Will you still be my friend?

How can you trudge away from me?
Like this leave me in this mess…
Close our shared house then move home too
Oh how as a child I prayed, believing I was blessed
Our rendezvous wouldn’t end but always be new.

Won’t you ask me in?
Let us no longer mistrust, distrust be rebuffed
By one another my mollusc friend
If not don’t speak: I don’t want to be crushed.

How can you carry away from me?
Even the sounds of the yearning sea, yesterday
The oceanic wave my mollusc friend
My limpet friend, one time open up for me!
Let me hear at least the wailing sounds of eternity.
