near death (domestic)

Her writing is spare, memorable and often funny as she negotiates storms worked up 'at the heart of the house' in a manner akin to Alan Bennett.

The Weather on Our Street from near death (domestic)


A hurricane jumped the fence,

blew in through the door

we’d forgotten to lock,

found the soul of the most fragile,

worked up a storm

at the heart of the house, 

one dead

three of us beached with the debris;

not a chair left unbroken

and only half a pot of glue

to re-shape a future. 

You’d know our house now for its hoard

of sticking plaster and umbrellas,

still trying to hold the corner.
