Tuesday, September 4


can we have a bit of hush
for an unknown ache
and other fables;

one girl asking
permission for a hair cut,
packing her horse into a suitcase,
name stitched into
everything she owns
preparing to be a
ghost this evening;

one girl a guerilla
only held up by bows
on her shoes,
apologising in her sleep
and strung
like too-early
christmas lights.
