Unraveling by Penelope Moffet

Penelope Moffet lives in Southern California, where her work as a legal secretary keeps a roof over her head and kibble in her cats’ bowls. She is the author of two poetry chapbooks, Keeping Still (Dorland Mountain Arts Colony, 1995) and It Isn’t That They Mean to Kill You (Arroyo Seco Press, 2018). A former journalist who was once frequently published by the Los Angeles Times and various national and regional magazines, she decided a few decades back that she preferred to focus her writing energy on poetry while finding other ways to earn a living. Some might say that wasn’t the best career move, but she still thinks it was the right decision for her. More of Penelope’s poetry can be found here.

  1. Such a hurtful time to become the mother of the mother. I remember that – and most of us also pray that we do not come to this same spot – patience is needed – I never had much of that – but tried.
