Heather Matthew - Wrappings


inside the drawers of my childhood

everything was wrapped, even hankies

four squared folded and pressed

into embroidered envelopes

scented with soap and lavender

my first stitches were chains of colour

looping names onto hanky corners

my mother blanket stitched all things frayed

I wrap memories in cloth and paper
