Publisher:  Stride ISBN-10:  094669955 Type: 



My first collection, now out of print.


Visiting Grandad

The bike is leaned against a wall,
I'm lifted down, a gate unlatched;

Led up the yard he used to play in,
Weeks of tea leaves in the drain;

Through fusty kitchen to a room
Whose fire glares, rising in its grate.

My outdoor things keep me safe
From their strangers' claim on me.

A clock shouts from the mantel, filling words
That father, son, stepmother reach to use.

He holds out his arms. I edge
Closer to dad, try "Going now?".


Dandelions For Mothers' Day

"Pee-the-Beds" and "Mother-Die!"
"Pick it and your mam'll die!"

"Faces like the sun." she said
Plunged them in a jam-jar.

But they caught up with her: -
Stained her skin yellow,
Turned her hair to seed-clocks,
Blew away her years.
