Drowning

Extract from “The Sensory Garden.”


” The weight of what John had just told her was like a concrete block, pulling her down to the bottom of a dark and murky ocean. Trendrils of rubbery seaweed floated by, ugly and greenish brown like overboiled vegetables. In the distance, sleek and agile creatures darted in and out of the reef, almost too quick for Helen’s bleary eyes to see. They scattered schools of minnow into a thousand pieces, like a chrystal bowl falling from a balcony onto the hard concrete ground below.”
