Read: Today’s made-up word

Morphaned

Anne Holloway

 

Changed by the loss of her.

 

The hole she leaves behind,

larger than the space she inhabited,

has caused a backdraught

which sucks me

from adult to grown-up.

 

Shape shifted.

 

These shoes pinch 

my owntwofeet

now I am standing on them.
