What do you mean they’re not here?
I am patient with you becasue of your fear of being
broken into. It's happeend three times before
in three different parts of town, over ten years.
The same person each time, you are convinced,
you can tell by the smell, you noticed the same
fragrance and you must sweat, too, burgling,
it's like performing on the main stage.
You switch the TV off as soon as a show
has a break-in ... 'I'm sorry I just can't ...'
... that's ok, we'll find something else instead,
documentaries about oceans are our safe space,
if I had it my way they'd just stop making new shows
completely, we don't need it anymore, it would be
bad news for the cameramen but what are all of us doing,
really, every time I move house I throw away so many things
and it's still not even close to being enough. Your sister
in her supported living bungalow does jigsaws with the staff
what I really liked was going on holiday
when the four of us would just play cards.
