Natalie Shaw – Anchor Baby

Anchor baby

As tether
As terrible chain
As foot nailed to floor

//

As hand in larger hand
As hand stopping
all the balloons from being gone

forever

Natalie Shaw has a kind husband and children of varying sizes. Her poems have been widely published in journals and anthologies, most recently Strix and Butcher’s Dog. She was commended in the 2018 National Poetry Competition.
