she imagines him imagining her, this is her salvation.


- I Have Days -

I

I have days
when any space
around me

seems
too large
the couch

is too big
the lounge room
oversized

I can't even
contemplate
the street.

II

On a radio
in the distance
the Shirelles

are singing
‘Mama told me
they'd be days like this

I almost laugh
but I am
too dizzy.
