We Were Not in Love

We Were Not in Love

Love Boshemia❤️


Gail Webb wrote this poem during Boshemia’s Made-in-a-Day Zine workshop with Dizzy Ink. The theme of the zine was Nostalgia. Look for more of her poetry in the upcoming ORIGINS issue of Boshemia Magazine. 


We were not in love 

Though we listened to 10cc

Day after day it gave us pleasure

So much we would squeal, sigh

Then flop back on the soft turf

Lying side by side, smiling,

Gazing upwards to another world

Mouthing each word together

Joined in one moment


Rising from this musical interlude

We moved harmoniously

Setting about the day’s pleasure

Whether sunbathing in Baco foil

Slathered in cooking oil for best effect

Or making up dance routines

To Rocket Man or Bohemian Rhapsody

Synchronised in mind, action

Intent on our wonderful future

“ Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget… another world is not only possible, she is on her way. 

On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
Arundhati Roy
