We sit for hours
The day passes
Daily purposes -
He phones his wife
She mixes cake -
Cannot be yours
A small, dumb place
White with a blind contradiction of connection
The sitting room
Hums with boredom
A crippled euphemistic kingdom
Of pills or "medication"
Meals cooked and crockery washed
"Neighbours": drama mimics life
Has Max left Steph?
Is Skye expecting?
A concept forms unbidden:
This is what "care" means
Talk to me!
It doesn't matter what you say -
What are the children doing?
Have they opened the new Arcade?
How did Hillary Clinton do in the primaries?
Is Tescos cheaper than Waitrose?
I will wear a pair of reliable shoes to the wedding
Let's play charades
I will finish the crossword, then play chess
Will you come with me to Bravissimo?
Do you remember The Rolling Stones at Knebworth?
Did you prefer Paul McCartney or John Lennon?
I will tell you off-by-heart my favourite poem;
I haven't always been a lemon.
The doctor's care ends this nightmare.
