Overheard in the newsagent’s

it’s like that woman ………………….Carla something
her with the monogrammed eyebrows

I know exactly who ………………….and what
she means……………………………….love

how that dropped stitch information
has been ravelled up ……………….afresh

my mother did that ………………..always fitting
new words …………………………….to the closest match
she had in store

…………………………………………….the only milk
we ever drink ………………………..is semi-skilled
