Found

The rain washed everyone away from the seafront on Sunday afternoon, leaving just me and a distant dog walker on the sky mirror of the promenade. I hid behind a wall as the sky came close to earth and looked around me at the bits of litter being blown beside me.

On a scrap of peach coloured paper that was splattered against the wall, written in capitals in a thick dark brown felt pen, it read like a wish list. It was too saturated to put into my pocket, so I copied down the words.

And I don't know why, but I just like it.
