Fourteenth Day, April 9th 

Youngest's 11th special day 

No party.  

No sleepover.  

No bouncy play.  

You promised, he never had to say.  

 

Split over cancelled tests:  

a pig in its sty, snuffling and grunting  

between fizz and fizzle,  

chocolate and seclusion 

 

It'll all be new in September 

He already talks of school, teachers and friends as absent.  

Like they’re gone.  

 

But 

 

Like Lego not finished.  

Like the scooter overgrown with grass.  

Like words dropped from a vocabulary.
