How To Bake A Pie In 44 Words


While Mum grew salad leaves 
and cherry tomatoes between 
the French marigolds, I made 

sloppy mud pies in an old tin, 
dotted it with blackberries
picked from brambles bushes, 

mostly those level with my 
dog’s lifted back leg.
I was 8. Mum was older.

    1. Indeed. “Mum was older” says so much about the consciousness of the 8 year-old.
