should be writing an essay ahh

written without thought

March 31, 2021

wood pigeon cooing somewhere unseen
drowning in mugs of hot weak tea
sinking in pillows that smell like
that particular washing powder and slightly
unclean dog

radios on everywhere, all through the house
each slightly out of sink
comforting echo
familiar voices and familiar words from body-less mouths 
alexa speaking perfect pitch
'the weather is 6 degrees celisius and cloudy'

a victorian bath that creaks
as if it might fall through
clawed legs and huge metal taps
stretch your legs and curl your toes and pretend to 
float in green scented bubbles 

back against the radiator
legs sticking out 
people stepping over them with a nod of 
acknowledgement (sometimes)
scorch your skin
watch Disney on a phone instead of working

google home echoes badly 
'come down for supper now'
