Even Now

by Katie Metcalfe

And I confess that sometimes
I wish she still covered me

with her light linen dress,
that she stroked my head
and danced backwards

over the rainbow,
spool winding a whole childhood
back around.

Katie Metcalfe is an author, poet and editor of ‘Beautiful Scruffiness’ Literary magazine.
