While waiting to be picked up

Recommended Posts


She divides each sepia image in half
with the nail scissors she found.
The snipping is hungry. Relentless
child bites that devour an hour.

Placing the bodies with care on
her grandma's bed creates a carnival
parade of Siamese twins -
all wedded at the hip.


She tries to permanently join a couple
but gives up, The sellotape
is an awkward child. It twists and curls
and the scissors can't cope.
