"...I could help you open and unfurl"
Tonight I will get home before dark.
The train pulls out of Preston to a perfect winter sunset: the moon is out and pink jet trails cut the sky. Remember when jet trails were a novelty? Your mum pointing upward: "Look! Aeroplane!" The idea of knowing someone who'd been 'up' in one, let alone going up in one yourself an outlandish, fanciful notion.
Oh well, I read this last week and found it heartening.
