Vieni qua, my neighbour says. Look.
In her kitchen sink, an octopus. My eyes shift from the octopus
to her rubber washing-up gloves. Then back to the octopus.

  2. (My Italian neighbour, who is in her eighties, was very proud to have been able to buy a whole octopus. Where from, around here, I don't know. She was cleaning it in preparation for stuffing and cooking later.)
    Thanks, Melissa!
