They did not come in the night, like monsters. They didn’t have horns or wings, or wear glinting jewels or hold cutlasses. They trudged slowly through the snow: one of the men had a limp, the other a rag wrapped around his left eye. They were scarred, grizzly, strange. These were the men who had taken their land. The women with them were wary, slung low with squalling children and hessian bags. When one turned to look at her, Ida...

SKELETAL LEGACY

Scene 1
It’s a sleek and minimalist living room with a wine rack, a clock and a white chaise longue. The only personal item is a large picture of an older woman on the mantelpiece. It is 5 o’clock. Simone, sixteen, wears a glittering gold dress, which is tight on her slim figure and explodes out as a mermaid tail around her ankles. Her mother, Juliet, stands behind her. She too is immaculately presented.

It's a day like any other
Floating in the pastel blue.
I portion out each faithful hour
Like orange segments, sure and true.

I give an hour to my grandma
Talking on the telephone.

I still have hours and hours
For books and birds and acres of sky.

This is a strange...
