The Wake – Hannah Brockbank

The Wake

A life time from now, I’ll still remember
how we steadied ourselves in the wake
of her worn body. How we tied apron strings
around each other’s waists, stacked teacups high
and told them not to topple over,
as if that could be the final thing to break us.

 

Hannah Brockbank is published in a variety of journals, magazines and anthologies including: When Women Waken journal, The London MagazineEnvoi, and Raving Beauties (ed.) Hallelujah for 50ft Women anthology. Her debut pamphlet, Bloodlines is published by Indigo Dreams Publishing.
