YOUR DRESSING TABLE.
(mum)

Your dressing table
What a shower of baubles!
And perfume bottles.
And lipsticks lined in rows.
Sometimes
I would sit on your chair
(Like you it was straight backed and severe.)
Would feel you sitting there.
My face in your mirror.
Trying to see what you see.

Was it a mother?
Or my father's wife?
Or that other....
The one who kissed
The man who built our garden wall?
The one we were not afraid of.

Now, If I have trouble
Conjuring you
Seeing your image in my had
I think of your dressing table
And remember.

dg1996
