Toby Sharpe


On his birthday, you ice a cupcake with glacial blue
and eat the whole thing in one choked mouthful,
then you click onto his page, and watch the wishes pour in,
and imagine him at home, or at a party, or in a restaurant,
with the people he loves.

Toby Sharpe once fell down a manhole, but don’t worry, he’s still here, clinging on.
