Welcome to my blog. I share new writing every Monday. 

What This Baby Is Made Of

Oh baby!
Made of milk
Made of blood and wet
Made of whisky before sex in a tent
Made of presents wrapped in pink
Made of google searches beginning with 'baby won't sleep'
Made of two kids next door playing jingle bells on the recorder while jumping on the trampoline
Made of daily Fire Danger warnings
Made of frozen lasagne dropped off by a friend
Made of pushing a pram over acorns on the ground
Made of magpies warbling at dusk
Made of the pile of shoes at the front door
Made of bike rides in the morning sun
Made of the bleat of baa baa black sheep
Made of the weight of your small body on my hip as I separate jar from lid.

What to expect
