They know me now, the Security Guards,

nodding faint acknowledgement that the

crackpot is back, the dapper old lady with a

screw loose, blinking her bovine eyes before

blanking them and heading for the pathetic

shards of my life enamoured with glass.

 

They think I am a bag-lady without bags,

except that exquisite Chanel clutch. Did I

steal it? they wonder, but I shan’t tell them

how many such guilt-gifts I’ve had from a

husband who has fucked everything

including my life.

 

There is rarely anyone there to see my

family album in red and black:

nothing like us of course, as though we had

all turned away when a photo was taken, or

been blurred or photo-shopped,

and I am always such a frump!

 

Was I ever young? Or did you

birth me as a mother? Was there

something before? Heat and dust, the

sense of a jolting cart and the

heart-stopping feeling of having

once been wooden.

 

For in these shards, these

fiches of the forever gone, there are no

Baby Photos, nothing before the

Bridal Bed, no blood or

breach of birth, no sore gummed breasts,

milk sopping wet whilst a demanding

God invaded my dry vagina, no nothing of

what I always, forever, was.
