I can solve all your problems
with a simple remedy of my own making.
Just sip this Nepenthe three times a day with meals
and over time the square patches left behind
by pictures will be covered by dark
oppressive modern wallpaper.
The pink towels stacked neatly in the cupboard
will turn a Bachelor shade of grey.
The ornamental vase that holds the gas key
and the radiator bleeding key
will better serve some charity shop.
The faint sweet smell in the air
and you'll wake up one day
in the centre of your own bed.
