the old house

Jessica Rhodes

on Google Maps when you
type in the address of the old house
it looks like 2006   maybe
because the white Rover is parked outside
and your mother can be seen   with a
blurred out face and a
full black bin bag   in one hand
lifting the dustbin lid with the other

and six years later she is
standing there still   indefinitely


‘the old house’ was published in 2016 as part of the UEA Undergraduate Creative Writing Anthology, Undertow.
