Have you tried turning it off and back on again?
I know you’re not a computer,
this isn’t an issue of overloading
or not enough space on the hard-drive
most things can benefit
from a little reboot from time to time.

‘Well you know of course
when you know who closes a door
he always opens a window.’
Except I’ve been eating on too many pizzas,
and I’m not sure the hips puberty gave me

In your eyes there’s no choice but to hike up my knickers
and make the most of where last night got me,
breakfast and all
and perhaps it might turn out
that this window
is less of a window,
and more like a door.

“Non. Non.” Serena felt the blush creeping up her throat as people began to stare. “Non poisson. Non poisson! Non Francey! Noney Francey!”
“I don’t want the bloody fish!” Serena screamed, throwing her hands onto her head and scrunching the large-brimmed sunhat between her fingers. “I asked where the ferry was! The ferry!”
