  • Spinster. I stink and remember. Whole days / in bed cawing Nooooo at the wall; the dress / yellowing, trembling if I open the wardrobe; / the slewed mirror, full-length, her, myself, who did this.
    • Spinster - unmarried women. Single sent. - she's alone. Derogatory term
    • stink- she has her wedding dress on. Environment never changed
    • remember- getting left. Smell reminds her
    • whole- synonym. Hole in her life. All of the day
    • cawing- animalistic imagery. Doesn't feel like a person. Onomatopoeia
    • Nooo- shouting. Emphasises pain and sadness.
    • wall- nobody else there for her.
    • dress- wedding dress. Can't say it. Old and fading like her.
    • slewed mirror- squinty. Slammed the door, mirror has moved. Off balance like her.
    • Full length- can see everything. No escape.
    • her- looks in the mirror and see who she has become.
    • myslef- what she is now.
    • who did this- she's responsible for who she has become.
  • trembling- other clothes are in there. Ones she would've worn if she had got married.
