All that remains are the slides of you
in your astrocan coat,
a carousel of birthdays, weddings,
christenings and funerals
and three silver buttons.
I take them out of the jewellery box,
rub my fingers round the curled up fern design,
ponder their likeness to the pagan symbol
for the three stages of woman.
