Christmas songs on the radio

Knowing at exactly the same time my friend was burying her lover.

Pharmaceutical haze.

‘Enter your car registration’

‘follow the instructions on the screen’

Christmas tree in the foyer

Swabs, pressures, bloods, rates, heights, weights,



raffle tickets.

people, wheelchairs, buggies, trollies.

Christmas songs on the radio.

Christmas fucking songs on the radio.
