|Personal protective equipment must be put on
carefully, says the woman on the radio,
and in an exact sequence: first the gown,
then the hair-net… I turn up the sound,
preferring this account of magical
robing to the endless stats of doom. Also,
her words have sprung a memory:
towards what preoccupies us: clothes.
