Where the Heart is

72 cans of Irn Bru jiggle through the borders of five countries on the backseat of Jim’s VW van. Waiting at Gate 53, Pam’s daughter inhales already - the vanilla pod seeds stirring into cake mix. Re-strapped on the back seat outside the vets, Martha’s cat stops his caterwaul, returns to domestic fluff. And hanging the painting of The woman with sleeping Tom, barren walls become mine.
