I had a mother once
Sweet peach
Who fed me
Washed me
Dressed me
Is now an old lady

Locked in the Flat All Day

She was locked
in the flat
all day
while he went out to work
but escaped through the window
never loved again

counselled women
on how to leave
was a friend
for a few years
ran away
to Lympstone Village
and died

~ ~ ~

One hour on foot
from Lympstone to Exmouth

An average espresso
a look at the sea
a few photographs

1.80 to catch the train home
