The narrator’s optimistic mood after changing the bedding is trailed by a series of resolute thuds; setting down a vase, a wheelie bin lid closing, and debris falling from a gaping hole in the ceiling. Their attempt to restore the orderliness of the room is negated as the room and mood deteriorate. Point-of-view is rattled through glimpses and glances, digressions and a heightened self-awareness. Recurring resolute thuds suspend any sense of finality and resolution.
New sheets (publication) is the companion work of New sheets (AV).

The voice ruminates over some green lighting seen in a shop front from the top deck of the bus, over multiple sightings. The text plays on the limits of this point of view; the lights seem to lack purpose for the narrator, who continues to fixate on a futile quest for clarity. Eventually, the movement of the mouth and source of the voice become disjointed, and the voice becomes dislocated through the shell of a scallop.
