A top-of-the-range microwave

A fame-seeking humility

A dream holiday on a one-way ticket

A perfectly made bed with soiled sheets

An opera whose orchestra is on leave

Last chapter in the book after the plot’s ended

A wedding-ring in the safe-deposit box

A school of self-destruction

A secure house locked from both inside and out

A choreography that tramples on notes like weeds

A used pair of silk pyjamas offered for use

A handwritten card deliberately posted unstamped
