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 Deadpan 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.
