Trivial Things

By Megan McGarrity 

Boats sit like top hats. 
And I am thinking of trivial things
like missed calls and postal votes,
forgotten friends.
What would you do if I jumped in?
I don’t know, neither of us can swim.
Your thumb presses white onto pink skin
and I am thinking of trivial things
like birthday plans and petrol stations,
party invitations.
A houseboat sits like a top hat.
And I am thinking of trivial things
like guitar strings, and I love you
and would it be funny 
to ask to borrow milk?
