She Leaves her Marriage Bed


Molly McGrath vanishes.

Up before dawn, she climbs

the slipped stones of the mountain.

Summer and winter, and months

in between, she’s dreamt each night

of her altitude queen. Her love of skin

and softened folds, calls. And no-one knows

and no-one knows who awaits Molly McGrath.
