Sarah Maitland Parks – Two Poems

At the Checkout

How did it happen
that I told the lady,
a mum from the playground,
everything?
.
These acquaintances
are emergency services,
they pick you up
when needed,
then let go
gracefully.
.
We all understand.
It is a small town.

‘All the nest’

I love my own typo.

I want to offer
all the people I know
the best one in the whole world.

All the best nests
are made of this type
of mess of words.
