.the drawing room.
slightly astonished at him using the word foreigners
he was surprised she was from finland ‘of all places’. spoke to her loudly
near as if she was deaf. she spoke another language
she spoke english.
a country gentleman indeed. surprised they came packaged this way
the exterior smart
the interior needs changing.
.the coffee shop.
they were trucked to siberia before the war, were starved
the british government moved them to africa ; brought them to
wales as the war ended
a polish village
over coffee she mentioned that although her family were safe
she felt that
‘we’ should not allow any more
refugees in over
i am still
whilst peeling the apple the radio plays
an interview with a wind rush lady
who also regrets our friends who come
here for better ways
saying they do not integrate these days
like she did
i will forever remain surprised
