Napowrimo: Jo Bell’s Prompt.

My poem cannot match up to Vona Groake’s but in an attempt not lose momentum here is my effort on a favourite word.




the only word to describe my mother’s speech patterns

for years no word I had found could describe the confusion

The way she accosts shop assistants with her own brand of gibberish

I am gifted at unravelling, babarella becomes xena warrior princess

There are often cultural swaps, and as I age I blush more

And find myself spouting nonsense with conviction.
