Washing Line

“And there you’ll be, in your cotton housecoat,
holding a wooden peg
between your teeth, as the washing flaps
on the clothesline you once briefly considered
hanging yourself with –“

from Margaret Atwood, Bring back Mom: an Invocation

in Atwood, Margaret (2006), The Tent, Bloomsbury, London, p. 111
