May 2020: The Time Capsule by John O’Donoghue
“They all fell silent for a moment. I could see them trying to look into the future, to imagine themselves as adults, married maybe, perhaps with families of their own, working away in jobs like Uncle Tommy in the Post Office, or Auntie Lizzie in the nursing before she was married, or gone to England, like my mother and father, or even further afield.”
The Time Capsule comes from The King from Over The Water (The Wild Geese Press, 2019).

not because the wind is strong
but because it's crazy.
Dandelion has wet himself
but won't let it get him down,
he's been through worse.
Rosemary doesn't know where to look,
it's all a bit of a mystery,
why do they bother?
Violet doesn't know why.
Poppy says don't be afraid.
Veronica says you should.
April shivers, a beast
has walked over her grave,
she hides in the chestnut tree.
Primrose lies low.
She sighs, she hopes
that May may come, come May.

523 people hospitalised with #Covid_19 at Northwick Park (& sister trusts) have been discharged since March 4th. Tragically 364 people have died there. 250 people still being treated as of yesterday.
