One Woman's War

A navy blue river	
Runs down the A5* 
Sheet of green paper 
that rustles in the quiver 
of her clammy hand	

the blurred lines 
match the misty eyes
searching for meaning
in the weary letters 
scrawled by a stranger

The last of one man
in ten sentences delivered
he regrets, she shivers
and knows the truth	

Her wombwarm babe	
whose downy head	
she waved to		
only yesterday		
lies cold and shroud covered 

•	Standard paper size measuring 148 x 210 mm, half of normal A4 letter size.
