WE MAKE LOVE

by simon andrewes

We make love
to change our lives
   We do what we can
 
We make love
when we need to most of all
   To change our life
 
We make love
infrequently, imperfectly
   When we need to most of all
 
We make love
upstairs, on cold wet afternoons
   Infrequently, imperfectly
 
We make love
in front of grandmother´s cat
   Upstairs, when it´s cold and wet
 
We make tea
and pour out the milk
   for grandmother´s old grey cat
 
She purs (the cat)
And we make love (you and me)
   Upstairs, when it´s cold outside
