Kenneth, sorry to have taken so long in getting back to you. I’ve been

watching the neighbours so often recently I think they’ve noticed &

are anticipating eyes at that shaft of fly-screen. The worrying thing

being, I traded in my gun that time there was an armistice, remember?

The vague wheelbarrow-fuck of history. I really needed the money.

Caring for number one like I’m just some dazzled champagne flute.

Dan gave / reminded me of your email after I used the laptop in the

pool. We won the raffle. What do you think: jelly-wrestling juxtaposed

with old microfiche research? Mormons on a leafy Sunday? Remember

not to go near the trees down the back of the place I used to live.

Don’t worry, I’m on maternity leave & a bit of gingerbread will help.
