It’s raining in my heart (KK)

The seasons change, and the nights draw in. In the salons of Seven Dials the locals gather around the crackling logs, and watch Television videos.

Television was, of-course, an early post-punk group formed in the late 70s by Tom Verlaine when he was dating Patti Smith. He took the name of the French poet, Paul Verlaine, whose volume, ‘Chansons pour elle’, is the autumnal present that Ethel has bought for Frida from Yifitsin Print Bookshop. As the rain begins to fall, Frida flings open the window and repeats the verse, ‘Il pleure dans mon Coeur Comme il pleut sur la ville.’
