1. Someone Somewhere

Someone somewhere is laughing at someone’s laugh,

Someone somewhere is pressing the ‘repeat’ button the twelfth time today,

Someone somewhere is opening an envelope with her thumb,

Someone somewhere is telling their child which hand’s left and which hand’s right,

Someone somewhere is emphasising their newly engagement ring-wearing finger,

Someone somewhere is saying their name with dignity,

Someone somewhere is pouring tea and adding the un-wanted sugar,

Someone somewhere is plugging in their laptop that their Dad gave them,

Someone somewhere is getting twenty-two birthday bumps,

Someone somewhere is turning back to look at the house one last time,

Someone somewhere is pressing ‘spell check’ on their second draft of their autobiography,

Someone somewhere is taking a deep breath and telling him,

Someone somewhere is putting the floral trousers back,

Someone somewhere is signing the bottom of the paper and shedding a single tear,

Someone somewhere is giving themselves a paper cut on their mouth from the envelope they’re licking,

Someone somewhere is looking at the white ceiling and imagining their niece in Australia,

Someone somewhere is telling her she loves her, even though she’s only just properly met her,

Someone somewhere is shedding their tears for her,

And she’s taking her last breath, and her first.
