Fiction    Reading Room    Memoir    Interview

13 Weeks

After the test
I misplace you.
You are not
in the shoulder bag,
not in the raincoat.
A cardigan arrives
in the post –
soft Alpaca, bouclé,
light brown with
a crochet edge.
I walk around the house
feeling like someone else.
Then I find your image
amongst the receipts.
A book of poems,
soup on special,
bamboo blinds,
an embryo.
