Donations are essential to keep Write Out Loud going    

There, there

My daughter tells me she’s picking up
more shifts than she normally would.
Her hands are raw and she’s running
out of sanitizer. I know she doesn’t
expect anyone to fix it but still I check
the expiry date of my aqueous cream.
Later, I place the tub in the garden
and watch over it from the window.
When she finally arrives she orders
me back inside. This time a hug
isn’t going to make things better.

These times are producing so many poems, so many stories, Shirley-Anne. So many ways of looking at the world in a different light.
