I needn’t have worried. I didn’t fall in the shower. I slipped on the wet kitchen floor (I’d just knocked over Bella’s water bowl) as I was trying to put a 5kg bag of rice in the top kitchen cupboard. I landed bang smack on my right knee and broke the patella. Hi ho. It’s not too bad. I can put weight on it but have to keep it straight so I have a fabric brace on my leg. It’s a bit sore today because, in the night, it slipped right down my leg.
I wash a great deal
to remove the smell of fear,
the free floating dread.
