Look closely and you’ll see I am not here. Listen to these convincing noises. Observe my empathetic nodding. Engaged without listening, I am here, and yet I am not. Behind these eyes, I am in a dusty album between old pages of black sugar paper. See how I am grey and balding, but my hair is long and ginger. I appear serious, but I am smiling through a pair of round NHS spectacles, wearing denim on a spring day in Bradford, with someone you have never met. No, I am not here. And in truth, I have not been for some time.
