Once pretty


I’ve been trawling through old notebooks and found some old poems to rework.

Here is one I quite like for its observation and simplicity.


once pretty

her pinched & harrowed

ghost

still lingers in flashes

as she guides

the innocent

push-chair child

through the busy

urban footpath
