All Good

Dave wears Marigold gloves to do his washing up 

(he refuses to buy a dishwasher 

even though he has read that 

they are more energy efficient 

and use less water 

but he doesn’t believe that to be true). 

He rides a bike to work and eats vegan meals. 

He wears a beaded necklace and 

a silver bangle on his left wrist. 

This is offset by his prodigious whisky consumption 

(JD, actually) and his penchant for swearing. 

As he says, it’s not healthy to be all good.

Henry is a writer, poet and mental health essayist based in Somerset in the UK. He is the author of several poetry collections and his work can be seen in Pure Slush, Lunate, and The Daily Drunk, among many other places.
