Beach Clothes


You must remember us going to the seaside. When you were little you would run around in your knickers and vest. We had a photo of you … holding up a fist full of wet sand, looking all pleased. I thought you were going to eat it.

You were that kind of child. Always putting things in your mouth.




So is this all right, then ?


“You’ve got clothes on.”


Yes. At the end of your cartoon … you said that I had to put some clothes on.  I said I didn’t need clothes because I’m dead. And you said you couldn’t draw me with no clothes on.


So I put this on. It’s a sundress. I found it in a photo on your bookshelf… Me on the beach with your Aunty … 1950 something. Remember?
