Universal credit

I see Santa buying something in the second aisle at Sainsbury’s he’s trying to be inconspicuous but Rudolph gives the game away. I wonder what it was he bought?

Any way you read it.

Slipping into and out from occasionally feeling something ain’t right is it temporary? or is the impermanence I feel here permanently.
