Launch of Angels, like laundry.

Updated: Jul 20, 2021

It was a privilege to have Mark Tredinnick launch my interactive poetry book, 'Angels, like laundry'.

Broken Watch

The small child picks up her father’s watch

and treasures this talisman of one she loves.

She plays with it, imagining herself like him

wearing a big watch in the wide world

then drops it,

smashing the face

into fragments.

Heart stopped

at what she has done

she turns to receive

her judgment.

And I react with anger -

destroying her dreams of wearing watches

in the wide world

as I make

the fragile face turned towards me

shatter into shards of tears.

I pick up the broken watch -

and hope there is still time.
