A black cross is painted on the wall of a white building that rises next to a swimming pool. The cross morphs into my mother. She has a champagne glass in her right hand with a jellyfish in it. She is wearing red shorts and a blue top. She is drunk.

Jellyfish are coming out of her shorts.

Mum falls into the pool. She sinks straight to the bottom. Bubbles stream from her mouth.

I dive into the pool and swim down to her. Her eyes turn to me and her hands make little movements. Something like a radio seems to be playing in her head. Anyway, I can hear it all right.

It's the Top 40 count-down.
