chloe says
i need an angel
with big white wings and skin
that shines like gold,
do you believe in angels, charlotte?

i say
the plants are all dead in here,
how can a plant
know something i don't?
and i'm not religious but the only time
i ever felt peaceful
was when i sat in church

luke comes in, and chloe says
luke, you believe in angels?

he says what, like them feathery dickheads
with halos and stuff? nah i don't -

then we sit and watch a fly bash it's brains in
on the window

and
i think
how strange
that it can't see what's killing it

and
i think
how strange

neither can we

(the plants are dead, but we are still waiting)

This is beautiful, and it reminds me of Skellig by David Almond, somehow. Hope things get better.
