Giving Up the Ghost

Decades hung inside her wardrobe
Jackie O style shifts in sixties crimplene
a coat of camel hair, pair after pair
of navy slacks still hanging on yet glad to go
without a fuss

to slip from hangers and from sight
into the waiting darkness of black bin bags
with just the faintest

Eleanor Livingstone

If you've any comment on her poems, Eleanor Livingstone would be pleased to hear from you.
