A Marriage by Rose Mary Boehm

The rain girl
lives in her dreams,
and in a house without a roof,
where mushrooms push
through the carpet,
and a beehive is forcing
its tumorous growth
through the piano strings.

As weightless as a new soul
she stares at him in distress.

And why would she remember
lightness now?

A German-born UK national, Rose Mary Boehm lives and works in Peru. Two novels and a collection of her poems have been published in the UK. Many recent poems have been (or are to be) published in mostly US poetry reviews.
