heats up

he heats up
his old aches
blooming onion weed


Something I just posted on NaHaiWriMo for the prompt ‘heats up’.

btw: Though rather old-school, ‘blooming’ is a mild swear word here, and this poem is about an ex who always accused me of introducing various weeds into his garden, when, in fact, the only thing I introduced that subsequently became a weed (lol) is forget-me-nots!

    1. It isn’t used much in the part of oz where I now live, and I suppose there is a whole generation who have never heard it used this way. I think it was an acceptable way to say ‘bloody’, back in the days of my parents.
