The green dress by the door
will be put in the same box as
the doll called sandy-
as will the cream shoes
and the books by Taylor Bradford.
There will be no need
now for the electricity bill to
be paid by Monday.

The fruit in the bowl
The contents of the fridge will be
emptied and the door left open -
but not for a holiday this time.
This time Alisha has gone for good.
At 04:50 or thereabouts
Alisha checked out
of this world of ours.
