Day eleven napowrimo

Ok so I am late in teh day and this is a scrap of a thing but here is a sense memory as suggested: there is also a fab children’s book by Quentin Blake called Mr Magnolia : ”Mr. Magnolia has only one boot.He has an old trumpet that goes rooty-toot—And two lovely sisters who play on the flute—But Mr. Magnolia has only one boot”



In Oxford an unfamilar city I stop short

midsentence, breathe in and am in

a childhood friend’s garden,

manicured lawn, small wigwam

scattered, muddied, naked:

fat bent limbed dolls looking up at us

all greened knees and earthy fingernails

tearing off juicy petals, white perfection

browning at my pigeon toed feet.



The Stirred quad is formed of Rebecca Audra Smith, Anna Percy, Jasmine Chatfield and Lenni Sanders.
