I have started to go to a local writing group. Recently we were set the challenge of writing ‘Who and When’. Here is a short poem I wrote based on that theme.

I have redacted

the faces

and the names,

the times

and the location.

But I have retained

a photocopy

of the feelings

To carry with me

in my back pocket

A snapshot of the shame

as an unhappy souvenir.

  1. I am. But maybe more just as a chance to interact with other people. I work from home most of the time and have very little human interaction, so it’s good to be around people occasionally!
