My Rival’s House

In this poem by the Scottish Makar Liz Lochhead, a woman visits the house of another woman whom she casts in the role of combatant – though the second woman seems unaware of the part she’s been given, and it transpires, as the poem unfolds, that their relationship is closer than we might at first have supposed.
