She Fears Burglars Will Take Her Special Stuff

Sandra Noel

The woman somehow knows the importance of the posh pen, its gold clip styling the handsome man’s pocket in their wedding photo. Often, she feels she’s on the brink of recall. 


Her GP uses it to write the prescription she needs someone to fetch. Tonight the pen will cache under her pillow with the co-op stamps, door keys, his unwound watches.
