Snippets (ix) Giffnock (iv) Fragments (ii)

Calderwood chicken-noodle soup

Superman

Illustrated Old-Testament

Under the dining-room table

On the stairs, adult conversation

Betty Dawn, cigarettes and velour tracksuits

Certainty of Friday-night chicken soup

Bureau

Of Human Bondage and The Ascent of Man

Spitting-image

Fried-egg sweeties and cola bottles

Red-reminders for the gas

Cold side of the pillow and Snow Patrol flash-forward

The Beachgrove Garden

Troon

Midges in my eyes and mouth and ears

Hovering in an ever-present moment;

Mrs Firth; old with wiry hair;

The Echo

Brasso, polishing.

Night-time and the Eternal Bard, terrified ascent;

Gefilte-fish; shut the door Dennis!
