I loved living in Springfield Rise
it is the only time I've used the word home
and meant 'home'
not the building where I live.
We cannot see the workers in their offices
but know that they are there.
It is Friday, 11am
and they are having coffee breaks
they are stood by the water cooler
talking about Lost.
They probably still think that it's raining.
They will do nothing tonight
they have plans but they will be cancelled
because 'it's been such a long week.'
I am eating a ham baguette from Lush
I am picking out the gherkins
I am checking whether the girl behind the counter
is wearing a wedding ring.
