    I only had one pair of revolutionaries cojones. I broke into the palace and flopped them out for the queen. Convinced, she mobilised the Horseguards and swords drawn, we marched on Downing Street. I had one fear; that after the killing I might not manage to disappear into mysterious legend.

    I only had one pair of pyjamas when I met you. At first the zipper buzzed its way up and down like a jolly bee, but as my hair grew longer, it caught it in and hurt to untangle.
    ‘You should cut your hair. Split ends weaken it,’ you said. I just bought a new pair without the zipper.

    I only had one pair of socks from you, a welcoming gift to our new house. After I’d put it in the washing machine, one of them disappeared. Have you ever wondered where lost socks go? I’ve kept that washing machine. Just in case it appears again, missing its half.

    by Stavroula Sanida

    I had only one pair of breasts, tiny like mini farfalle. Another woman had a pair of juicy thighs stuffed like cannelloni. The one who was approaching reminded me of spaghetti number 3. If you could see us now in the swimmng pool, you would say we are all delicious.

    The Enemy

    I only had one pair of black heels.
    Long. Sharp.
    I only had one mask.
    Velvet. Eye-less.
    I only had two hearts.
    One white. One black.
    I only had one mirror.
    It revealed the Enemy on my 19th birthday.
    Black heels. Velvet mask. Two hearts.
    Quite recognizable:
