Midnight alone here they said. Fresh tarmac like treacle, clean white lines to synch the landing with these signature shapes.Time to eat my last liquorice sweetie, sound of drones looming nearer, wafts of cinnamon. I will be beamed up to a sweet and varied life, to encounter endless Allsorts.
Explanatory historical note
In the UK, there was a famous brand of liquorice sweets, Bassett’s Liquorice Allsorts.
Bertie Bassett was their front man
As I child, I loved their bright colours and chunky shapes and they tasted lovely too.
