Here she sits, fell out of a tree when she was twelve, can't walk, is looked after by her parents. She sits behind the window like a well-and-sit-me. The sound of words brings her to her thoughts. Outside, the drunk pushes his bicycle to the drinks market. At the tram terminus, old sailors get off and walk to the Seamen's Home. The streets are narrow, but they lead to the canal, and the canal leads to the sea. Dreaming away? 'Rearing up', she thinks, 'would be better'.
