Poems on the Buses Exhibition

This small body
soft as a shelled pea
popped from its pod
last of six
too many to hold
dropped onto stony ground
sits close whispering
fingers along her arm
holds the thread
anchored to her knitting
cradles the ball of wool
shapes it with urgent hands
“like a nest’ he says.
Yes. Like a nest.
