“This bleak little domestic drama of loss and loneliness is cleverly understated. In fact, its tragedy lies in restraint: an economy that extends into technique. … The narrator breaks off, now and then, to punctuate the poem with intense images that characterise the event and act as counterpoint to a series of utterances the sheer banality of which is, ironically, an indicator of their power to hurt. You can almost hear the echoes … The level tone of the piece gives everything away: the fear of feeling, the expectation of neglect; and the lines find just the right weight to allow us to witness the little tableau, static for only a moment, the arrested motion, the averted eyes, the damage done, the damage yet to come,” David Harsent.on Choirsinger
