Friday, January 25
a fizzing flurry in my stomach. a heavy ache between my shoulder blades. as I tune in, I look out of the window. the dial-a-ride van driver is helping an elderly lady along her front path. she inches along, her head bent permanently forwards. she keeps a close eye on the ice under her feet. for a moment, we are the same person.
