New sheets, guest publication - Lydia Davies
The narrator’s optimistic mood after changing the bedding is trailed by a series of 'resolute thuds'; setting down a vase, a wheelie bin lid closing, and debris falling from a gaping hole in the ceiling. Their attempt to restore the orderliness of the room is negated as the room and mood deteriorate. Point-of-view is rattled through glimpses and glances, digressions and a heightened self-awareness. Recurring 'resolute thuds' suspend any sense of finality and resolution.
