I was having a siesta in a pension in Sevilla when a gecko came in through the window. Just as I was drifting into sleep I heard the duet of Don Giovanni and Zerlina "La ci darem la mano". I thought, My God, that gecko can't half sing, and I opened my eyes and saw the gecko looking at me, probably thinking, My God, that woman can sing two parts at the same time. Apart from my war adventures it's the only true story I've written. Although I have to admit I elaborated it a bit. This will be published in my first chapbook Kate Moss & Other Heroines, Black Scat Books November, 2012 http://blackscatbooks.com/absurdist-texts-documents-series/
Mary stood in the street. Just another face in the crowd. It was hot and dusty, her throat was dry. Then the mob surged forward.
‘Jesus Jesus,’ they shouted.

‘Oh Jesus,’ she said, ‘don't tell me you're into sado-masochism.’
‘No mother, it was the Romans.’
‘Oh you poor thing. What did they do?’
