Storyboard Text

  • Summer
  • "For a full week ,the blackberries would ripen. At first ,just one, a glossy purple clot"
  • "You ate that first one and its flesh was sweet like thickened wine: summer's blood was in it"
  • "Then red ones inked up and that hunger sent us out with milk cans, pea tins, jam pots"
  • "Our hands were peppered with thorn pricks , our palms sticky as Bluebeard's"
  • "But when the bath was filled we found a fur, a rat-grey fungus, glutting on our cache"
  • "I always felt like crying. It wasn't fair that all the lovely canfuls smelt of rot"
