  • Goodbye, Clothes.
    Goodbye, waste paper bin.
    Goodbye utensils, the computer, one sofa, four chairs, a fridge freezer, a kettle.
    Goodbye photographs, goodbye camera, goodbye memories thought of fondly.
    Goodbye Christmas, presents wrapped under the tree, turkey for four, and crackers all around.
    Goodbye holidays, shopping trips, meals out and day trips.
    Goodbye to a sense of who I am, what I am, and what makes sense.
    Goodbye family.
    Goodbye mum.
