Janine Butcher is hugging Danny Dyer
and the caption underneath says
Kat and Sharon reel from the night’s events
and struggle to see eye to eye
and my body remembers Phil Mitchell
crying on his sofa while I ate
mashed potatoes on mine not understanding
why he let things get to this point
and I think about his brother leaving
and eating exotic animals
and interviewing deadly men
and how my brain could do with a good
clear out with some soap.
