This week’s submissions consider many degrees of separation, from the uncomfortable closeness of the political and the personal in Jacqueline Krass’ 8 November 2016 to Finty Hunter’s haunting description of a body’s proximity to fragility: Muscle turned skeletal. Chance encounters abound: James Roberts’ glimpse of an echo; Rosie McKeown’s meeting of two old companions; Alice Hughes’ reflection on a ‘bad start’. We hope it reminds you of everyday connections in a world preoccupied by differences.
