Karen Izod

This is a room for fathers.

I brought mine with me, as you brought yours too;

my own, who migrated without return.

Here, my father speaks through sagging shelves,

a Wild Wales, a Romany Rye.

Yet I feel his stillness

where once he might have lifted onto shoulders

that were young and strong.

I feel his weight in my pen.

Thoughts bend around oak beams, under oak tables;

hang as a chandelier too big for the room, its light too low,

stricken like a bed too tightly made.

I take the bird-cage into the field

and look across to the sea.

I open its doors and call.
