Scratches on the carpet. Loose threads in the fabric cover, knotted, cut off, frayed. Adjusted seam, hitched-up nylon tights, trouser leg with a broken thread, invisible white starched shirt, skirt with silk inner lining. Cushioned upholstery, foam, wire, varnished wooden legs with signs of gnawing, clawed open lining, armchair seam coming apart, foam particles, crumbling dustily, flakes of dust.
Whispering, unrecognisable words, terms of endearment, purring, deep tones, interruptions, irritations, scraping stroking fur, knees cracking, sounds swallowed up by the carpet.
Fur on the fabric covers, the handbag’s leather seams pushed across the cotton fibres, the camera shutter clicks, the flash fizzes, more quiet purring, fur on the cotton contours.
Putting shoes on, picking up handbag after putting on coat, lighting cigarette, picking cat hairs off suit, patting hair, turning off ceiling light, closing door, looking back, locking, putting away key. Noises in the hallway, heels on stone steps, distant laughter, bright cat eyes in the dark flat, scratching the foam filling, scraping, chewing, claws stuck fast, spat out thread remains.
