Stair-Climber

She regretted the bell straight away

as it allowed the

meek man she’d married to become the

tyrant of the sick-room, the

bed where her long-fled children were

conceived now barricaded by

bottles of air and tubes and

…stuff, and her relegated to the

second-best bed while her

life was reduced to

negociator with debtors,

purchaser of medicines,

specialist cook and

unspecialist washer-up, bringer of

needlessly forgotten things, a

stair-climber.
