    We are six strangers gathered
  • LATE

    The last time my father returned from work
  • Thomas Hardy in the Dorset County Museum

    Turned sideways in a desk chair,
  • Breathing Room

    Not every week,
  • Handel in London, 1741

    Wedged in a chair near the open window,
  • In Memory

    I remember the night my father died
