From one room to another – Kate Garrett

From one room to another

I was wearing a corduroy
coat at the end of June –

the need was unexpected;
like your scent of berries and blue

summer at midnight brushing
cold rain away, like the sudden

rush of heat through an attic
window drying my lake-damp skin

twenty years before. The weeks passed,
morning followed bright on the road

rolling me to your street. The hint
of a kiss pulled me into Wednesday,

sweat-salted and heavy, smiling
up to cloud-cottoned July.

 

Kate Garrett writes and edits. She was raised in rural southern Ohio, but moved to the UK nearly twenty years ago, where she still lives – in sunny Sheffield – with her husband, five children, and a sleepy cat. Twitter: @mskateybelle / www.kategarrettwrites.co.uk
