Robin Skelton’s Note

LEAVE THE CHAIR
Restaurant UNO DUO. Only for cpuples and singles. Singles
have chair removed from double table unless they say
"Leave the Chair". Ofen say this and are joined. One man
however, always leave the chair. Talks to invisible 
companion. BUT things are discovered. A whiff of perfume.
A petal fallen from a boutonniere. Once even a tiny
handkerschef - into the cash dresk - but it went missing.
Denoement either "Leave" or "Take away the chair".
ON THE FERRY
Brindisi ferry. Begin to see doubles of people. Very close
indeed. Has happened before. Almost everyone id someone
else. Recall Styx. Saling Between Islands motif.
He was Joe's double, no doubt about it, but he was
only the first.
SALES SERVICE
Garage sale. But saturday sell Sunday.  Then something
occurs. Buy object (small statuette) sell Sunday, see it
next Saturday, buy it, sell it. Price doesnt go up. Odd.
Keep it a week.....occurrences.....
