Administration for Beginners

A the battle of the sexes is played out in slow motion behind me. I speak to an administrator who thinks he is God but cannot tell his arse from his elbow. He whines and wallows in the confrontation – it saves him having to think. I watch the leaves on the maple. They flare acid yellow chewing into green, washing down the tree like pressure from a dry brush. Colour in a pointillist splash that draws my attention.

  1. Pointillist is a great word and not one I’ve ever come across. Wonderful. An excellent strike against the constant dumbing down of language in our country. You’ve just made me reach for my dictionary 🙂
