Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky

Loss, by Wendy Cope

In honour of Last Serious Relationship Man, who left four years (four years) ago this week.

Loss

The day he moved out was terrible -
That evening she went through hell.
His absence wasn’t a problem
But the corkscrew had gone as well.

- Wendy Cope

I love Wendy Cope! We managed to get her to do a reading at the College where I work a few years ago - she was really good with the students and read lots of poems, including this one.

Sorry this particular poem resonates for you, though. It really is a bugger when the corkscrew disappears. ;)
