The smell of pine sap fills the bathroom
while interviews about love and lovemaking

play through those speakers disguised as rocks,
you find them in pub gardens.

A short suite of poems featuring itchy noises; architecture and its discontents; time's syllabic drag; the sting of language as it oozes into cuts between fingers; and so, writing about writing; administrative work at bedtime and other ambiguous grammars.
