I did the math. And boy. Do I suck at math.

Yesterday I turned my mattress back the 180 degrees that I’d shifted it at the start of my latest attempt at an ‘us’.Putting it back as it has been in the previous years of sleeping alone and in doing so drawing the line under what ‘we’ had been.

And each time I read them, they’ll make sense to me in differentContinue reading “Stone-age Love”

The dull thud when it hit the glass distracted me from something I was editingContinue reading “Damn ‘Rona”
