You spend too much time watching TV, she says, and please get your feet off the pouf.
Sure, he says. Docos, current affairs, the six o’clock news.

Whatever, she snaps. And you’ve always got your head buried in a book.

Non-fiction, he replies. Bios. Travel. True crime. Politics. I’m interested in what goes on in the world.

If only you spent more time in it, she says.

            
John is an Aussie writer of poetry, short stories and flash fiction. He aims for a frisson in every piece but doesn’t always achieve it.
