Two Poems

By Julia Graves

Today

we buy ice cream
in the silence
of a stretched
out queue.

We keep safe.
We try
to keep safe.
Knowing

tomorrow it might change
again.

Tomorrow it might rain
again.

                   22nd July 2020

We

move in closer

       teasing

test-

    ing

the boundaries

like a surgical gown

      they

         l  o   o   s   e   n. 

Julia Graves: I am currently studying creative writing with the OU. So far, I’ve won one local writing competition and been placed in one national competition. Hoping to start a blog soon.
