as a way of saving money, your mother drives to
all of the McDonald’s’ around and collects their boxes.
on one of the boxes your mother has written ‘China’ in marker pen
and you record this on Facebook because your brother has pointed out
that it is a pretty impressive feat that we have managed
to fit the whole of China into a cardboard box.
‘boxes’ was published in 2016 as part of the UEA Undergraduate Creative Writing Anthology, Undertow.
