                                                       sitting room

                                               chest-height handle

                                               smell of sofa-linen
                                               and wood-fire evenings

                                               with company
                                               and dark green wines

                                               cool black boards and
                                               the white patterned carpet

                                               with almost-meeting
                                               castle walls

                                               brow-height mantelpiece
                                               on jungle green

                                               and the piano in the
                                               corner with duff bass keys –






childhood wormhole: ‘up floated the printed words …’
green wormhole: loud music
piano wormhole: ‘sneezing …’
white wormhole: ‘at midday the Batman walked across the square …’
