having done it all, we will happily expire into each other's arms. life will go back to normal, our futures happy dustbins & our past glorified. our foreign friends will tell lies on our behalf. we will pretend to mind. & this weekend will slip beneath the waves like a wayward bikini bottom, revealing & missed. only freshly marching columns of smoke will have the strength to carry on, like nothing, like it's nothing.
