For the first time, I understood despair and saw my children burning.
On pregnancy and grief during pandemic lockdown.
“Not here, not this school.” Until it is.
Life and death by misadventure.
Overheard intimacy pulls the listener into its orbit, insinuating complicity where there is none.

My grandmother had no way of knowing a book on birds, sent from Russia when I was a child, would determine my adult fascinations.
This wasn't the first time I had become obsessed with drowning.
