Violet
     When he cleared out her room after the dreadful event he made some startling discoveries; for Violet Hearne, for all of her saintly activities in her outward life, was a kleptomanic. She only had the one room, and that room was obsessively tidy. It was not the haunt of a hoarder. It was not the dive of an incorrigible thief. It was just the room of a single woman in her thirties, roughly the same age as the century she had been brought up in; neat, clean, drab, livened only by a couple of prints cut from magazines and carefully framed and a picture of her family that she must have brought all the way from England.
     In her public life Violet had been astonishing. In fact the local priest was already talking about the possibility of sainthood, maybe in a few hundred years, maybe if her legend stood the test of time. Violet had been a good Catholic, English but of fine Irish descent. She had come out here on a steamship in her twenties in a

Kirk
Do you know, Spock, I never thought you’d leave us. I mean, so many times – so many times – I thought you were dead. For a few heart stopping minutes, hours, days sometimes, I thought you were gone, but you always came back. It got me thinking that you couldn’t die. Just couldn’t. That’s silly, isn’t it? All men die. But then – no, I know it. I know what you’d come back with. You’d say in that wonderful, wise, level voice, I am not a man, Captain. I am a Vulcan.
And do Vulcans die? Do they die in the same way as us mere frail human beings? There was the Intrepid. I know that. You felt them, all four hundred of them. But they weren’t you. They weren’t you, Spock, and I – I suppose I endowed you with some superhuman ability, some cosmic power of just staying alive. Every time you gave me those heart stopping moments I still had a thought in the back of my he

The Child Catcher's Out Again
I will not step outside again.
Not now. Not now the days are closed
and paths are damp grey rivers leading
to a lesser world. The sky a low lid
over every ant-like step. A press on us.
This time of year the eyes are out.
The watchers watch away.
Their gossip comes in frozen breath,
makes lines of heat, makes mouth-to-mouth,
resuscitating wintered minds.
My hooded head is down, and will be down
until the eyes are turned, mouths sewn closed.
I keep my needles rusty, just like so,
in case the child-catcher’s out again.
Her smile is raw.
(They’re always hers, those crafty types.)
They care you see. They see.
Their eyes are hawks, talons out.
They live on specks.
Swoop. Eyes forward, down,
wherever searchlights like to fall.
They look for dirt, loud gulls they are,
their arms umbrellas, shields,
aching arcs to capture wind. To lift.
Support. To love with stoned-out eyes.
The loud-voiced ones they are,
the social animals. They will expunge
the warped outsider

Literature
StarTrek: Chocolate
     Jim had not shaved for days. There was not enough stubble on his face to constitute a beard, but he definitely looked far from his normal, well-presented self. In addition to the stubble, Spock noted, there was a smudge of dirt on his left cheek, one on his forehead, and a thick smear of mud over his left ear. His top was ripped in four – no – in five places, showing glimpses of flesh and of cuts lined with dried blood, and his trousers were so filthy it would be more logical to count the clean places than the dirty.
     ‘I know what you’re thinking, Spock,’ Kirk said as he caught the Vulcan’s gaze. ‘But believe me, you’re no catalogue holo either.’
     Spock ran his hand thoughtfully along his own jaw, feeling the sandpaper resistance of stubble growing from normally smooth skin. His own clothes were at least as ripped and torn as his captain’s, and his

I've never written a journal on the app before and I haven't been around here for ages and I don't have a subscription any more. But I wanted to update to say we had to say goodbye to our dear Frodo on Monday. He was ill with age and getting worse, no longer happy, almost no longer with us. So I cradled him in my arms and we took him to the vet's where a very gentle vet and nurse put him to sleep. It was very sad and there were many tears and I held him until we buried him under a tree we planted very recently in memory of my brother in law, who we lost suddenly last winter. He was wrapped in purple cloth and buried with an egg. As a kind of tribute, Murdock peed in the hole before we laid Frodo to rest. It being his time to go was terribly sad because I've known him since he was two days old, but he went as peacefully as was possible.
