New Old Phone – Felt strange

Four or five years ago I purchased a second hand phone from Cash Converter in Kentish Town. It still had some messages in them which painted a rather bleak picture, (months later my own depressing narrative would occupy this space). I just found the typed up texts that I saved at the time for some reason. It made me rather sad. No numbers kept.

The message remains unsent in the drafts folder. I turn off the phone, put it on charge and leave the flat. Felt strange
