. the dress .

Posted on September 28, 2014 at 11:50pm 0 Comments

if the dress is ripped it can be mended,

if it is shredded it can be lined

with net for strength and longevity.

dirty, will wash it, iron and air it,

loosely bind into keeping,

a collection, memory

of those halycon daze.

will buy a suitable hanger.

harbour to the beach.

no city here, this is

the country.

is little. painted bad,

so i bought it ,


it has become an installation

with eggs, which was at home,

in the outbuilding, where i

keep the idle atrefacts.

after bottling stuff with blood,

bones, i packed it nicely with

tissue, to send to the academy

for exhibition.

i must take better

I haven't been on SheWrites much lately.  Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose.  I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though.  Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders.  I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group.  How about YOU?

And you.  Is it still damp in Wales?
