Amongst streets of slabs and blind windows - Renewal, Gentrification: scene names for unscene parasites of profit - the shadows of flesh and memory move until it overcomes them and a brave few, the iceberg’s tip, scrounge a doctor’s appointment.
“Been to City Farm? Seen the animals?” doctor asks gently, Voice perfect: too quiet and patient becomes invisible; too loud, it will blow down the house of patient’s mind.
No, the shade says.
Doctor writes a prescription to right a wrong
“Take two therapeutic donkeys, with water, twice a day. If you’re not better in a week, come back.”
They never do.
