What I Have Now Lost, poem by Cecilia Morris.

What I Have Now Lost

Grandfathers gold fob watch
Two husbands
Uterus and fallopian tubes
Part detachment of retina in eyes
Recipes I was always going to make
Teeth teeth teeth
Glossy hair
Fathers only letter
Ordered cupboards
Bone density
7 hours straight sleep
