A friendly fishmonger in the harbour

suddenly spews TV-hatred

as acrid and thick as toilet bleach.

His fish spoils faster.

I go vegan.


People are lighter

in the streets, ready for flight.

There is no looking each other in the eye.

Dense fear mutes

the tongues of other languages.

And then there is the “oh, we like your lot, it’s the others…”


I can still see the coast of France

when the air is clear.
