She knows the right people,
wears them with pride.
Wears jeans by Stella McCartney,
shoes from LK Bennett,
bags by Louis Vuitton.
Her diary is full -
free tickets to first nights
at Glyndebourne, The Palladium,
The ping of a message comes
bringing lavish detail, back story.
She loves everyone to death just in case,
makes dear friends on the wing
in Pseremos, Amalfi.
A lifetime ago it was
a rusty Volvo to Donegal,.
ear to a sea shell, small fantasies.
Well we all have to start somewhere
where the sea rushes in and out
with so much to shout about.
