daisy comes home to her empty flat
sets down her things, locks the door
daisy takes a drag from her cigarette,
and leans back in the corner

they said it wouldn't stay like this for long
said you'd be back on your feet
well, it's not the first time they turned out wrong
asleep on the floor, still there past dawn

daisy jerks awake twelve hours later,
not quite sure when she lost her balance
tightens her grip on the rope she holds, but
it keeps slipping through her hands

their eyes grew wide when you said that word,
said daisy, promise you're not
well, it's not the first time your word's in two
do you hear me, dad? i'll see you soon

used to play in the garden,
in the daisies he had planted there
saw the light in his warm eyes,
before he blew it out beyond repair
like birds of a feather, so they say
daisy flies away
