Viewing the local antiquities

The spectrum 


Christmas bulbs round the Buddhist altar in the foyer; plush of the waiting room chairs and divan; hallway carpet outside her cube; LCD readouts from her boombox; curtains; the swoosh on her can of Diet Coke, there on its tray for half-time; swirly peppermints in a gold bowl by the door to the street; brakelights, as her driver spots the number I gave her agency; a felt cloche; the scales of the dragon tattooed on her biceps, its flames; a scrawled phone number; the O of her lips; a soy sauce calendar.
