*

a life in boxes
the memories her daughters
fought over
priced to clear
in the last hour of the car boot sale

*
this moment of clarity
a dying star
burns itself out
surrenders to the void
behind the gas works
*

since the misunderstanding
in marks and spencers
she takes communion
two bus rides away
where no one knows her name
*

the early light
bleeds out
another documentary
about sharks in big water
and small
*

his mother away
visiting her sister in margate
he introduces me
to his friend
gabriel from rio de janiero
