Wings – by TOM BLAND

Wings

I rushed home last night holding 30p noodles, spring onions, and what was either lobster or pork with unreadable scribbling across the transparent plastic packaging.

I collapsed on my bed in a short term hibernation that lasted until my alarm rang so loud it woke the whole house…

my meat-fish-hybrid had grown wings… but unlike Icarus, it hit the sun straight on… ‘we’re all mutating,’ the bus driver said.
