Portrait: Homeless Daughter: ‘Sophie’ Aged Seven Youth blown away. Like a breath to dust or ash, the daughter exists no more. She is bruised calcium on a rim of nail; a scratch and fracture inside a bag of skin; an unnoticed bundle hidden in slick foetal curves of blankets and doorways. Tears well in the […]

S. B. Borgersen
