Me Today

Me Today

I took a tricycle to the hospital

A has never danced, but he gave it a pretty good go

his brow furrowed intently

A garden centre, an abandoned farmhouse, an empty field

a procession of beautifully unremarkable things

I headed to get the flu vaccine with a spring in my step

I put a bottle of champagne in the refrigerator

Leftover pineapple buns and coconut tarts waited to be taken away

I bought one of each for tomorrow's breakfast

Oh, that’s just my mask

“Just remember you left the train; the train didn’t leave you.”
