* In A Girl's Head


A Poem written by my Great Niece Kitty Cotton aged 12 years.


In it there are ribbons
and bags
for drowning out a voice of an embarrassing Dad.

There are a few
Abacrombie models,
which come first, by far.

There is an entirely new colour,
An entirely new clothing line,
An entirely new sweet.

There is a glass pool
with a party inside.

There is the sea
turned upside down.

There is a fox with no brush.
A pack of cards without an Ace.
A land with no sky.

Somewhere in the corner of a girl’s head lies
a spark of friendship and a glow of love.

The hour yet bears for thee and me
