Beating the T-Rex
The alarm stretches out its arm
and grabs me. I am torn from
giant chorizo-style sausages in the Westcountry
roadtrip mystery I am solving with Quintin,
Julie and a small American Foxhound. I forget
how to stand my ground against the T-Rex
and instead of drifting six miles up into the sky
I turn and reach my hand out, looking for the sound in time.
