ask yourself

what thing
wd make her walk of there
not a penny to her name
the only two things she owns
strapped tight in the stroller
& skipping beside her

instead of gossiping
on how she could
ask yourself
why she had to

This poem is an extract from my forthcoming poetry book 'Nothing Here Needs Fixing'
