Instead – by Colette Colfer


I’ve no grave to visit,
wreaths to weave
or epitaph to write.

Instead of a tombstone,
the headboard
of another woman’s bed.





Colette Colfer lectures in World Religions in Waterford Institute of Technology in Ireland. She is an award winning radio-documentary maker and spent many years working as a journalist. She is working on her first collection of poetry.
