Pink Gums

When I lived in the Docklands of East London, next to Commercial Road, it was a battle to keep my gums pink.

Here is a short reading, from my novel Never Mind the Beasts, about the many routines from my time in the Docklands. Close to Poplar, in the Lansbury Public Housing Estate.

It is good to keep your gums pink.
