Amongst the chatter, the tea and scones,
lies a laden message; not for the feint hearted.
Cameras flash, people share their views.
In an intimate space, a crowd gathers.
Here are snapshots of a complex condition,
images of its intrusion stark to the unprepared.
It is only in the shuffling gait, the stony face,
the awkward cup holding can one hazard
a guess what lies beneath, what has
brought them together in this space.
