An excerpt from my strange, fragmented little contribution:




Into the city, running with Ali. Sodium rain. Pre-bomb Victoria. Crowd sweating burgers and perfume. Jumping walls to the Birdcage, park lake breeze, night ripples. Running to the locked gate, climbing, sitting on the bridge, house on the island, who lives there?
