Unmeeting

Unmeeting


In a room with a friend she had that sense 
of herself
once overlooked
suddenly 
she was the woman who 
had a secret
– deep white – 
to tell or keep
a surge that trickles to a sigh

Did you open a door to access the spaces 
between
being&becoming?

This is a decent neighbourhood
(well, it used to be)
I was never conflicted. 

But 
- can I ask -
did you make me do it? 
Or was it just one of those things?

You must be


Jane Seaman  re - discovered poetry whilst studying for a part time MA in Creative Writing at the University of Kent, which she completes in 2019 at the age of 58. She is especially fascinated by hybrid poetry/prose forms and has been published in  Confluence ,  Here Comes Everyone, Quailpipe,  and  QWF.   A published writer since her early teens, Jane’s novels for children and teenagers have been translated into nine languages. In a varied career, she’s been a waitress, civil servant, care assistant, pole dance teacher, marketing officer, university lecturer, and, last Christmas, an elf in Santa’s grotto. She blogs occasionally at www.janeayres.blogspot.co.uk
