    Default The Terrible Shears (CTG)

    The Terrible Shears

    "The terrible shears went clack clack clack."
    D. J. Enright

    Today would have been your 90th birthday, Mum.
    Last month, you were slipping away from us
    in hospice care, diagnosed with kidney failure.

    Such a well-appointed room; outside, a buddleia
    swarmed with butterflies. Donna noted that
    you were too far gone to enjoy such luxury.

    As with Dad, dying of cancer three decades ago,
    I wished I could drag you back from
    where you had gone, use the jaws of life


    ADVERTISING




    to restore you to what you'd been. But oh no,
    the terrible shears, they never stop do they,
    the terrible shears going clack clack clack.

    You're still having a hard time, eh Chris. The pain of your mum's passing shows in your writing.
    Take care, mate.

    Thanks, oddsocks. Yes it's difficult particularly because on Mum's birthday I had an email from a cousin who had not heard the news. I had emailed her but unknown to me she had changed email addresses.
