12th January 2018

pre-dawn birdsong
carried on grey wind
new streetlights

new for old
we drag a washing machine
from Lu's car to the kitchen
and leave it there for a while.
Later, I drag the old one out
(the kitchen floods because the water doesn't turn off)
and set it by the bins;
connect the new one
and clean the floor.
The scrap men take the old one
five minutes later
and the ancient dog
craps on the leather sofa.
