time out with grandad

time out with your
 step grandad

 only Christmas days
 unwrapping action man
 and hot wheels to bind us

 from asphalted pit lane
 beside The Barley Sheaf
 we walked left into scrub

 “What are you doing at school now.”
 “Egyptians”

 I carry the minibeast book
 I bought to help us.
 “Don’t think we’ll find
 any Scarab Beatles, today”

 No expression.

 I lift damp wood
 for signs of life
