Late Friday afternoon
the wedding tomorrow
a busy day for Kate mother of the groom.
to do list
except the photographer.
Deposit paid, time confirmed
at home in the morning
pictures of the family – before five becomes six.
relief catalyses cheerful banter
and false promise
“they can do it all themselves next time”
She stepped out of the shop
over the pavement
onto the street
into the traffic … and eternity.
