Poet's Return

“Really Tom, you've not thought a name for him? You cannot keep calling him 'pup.' It's just lazy.” Kit was grinning, his mouth open in a pup smile too.

“Oh, You got bigger while I was gone. Oh yes, yes you did.” That was not directed at me.

And see, here was the great Dr Marlowe, nothing with him but a bag of dirty clothes. He was kneeling on the floor with his arse between his feet. He was limber as a child. Pup was licking his chin.

“I smell of horse,” he said. Pup had moved on to Kit's crotch. His whole body was wagging. Kit held him off with one hand, and scrambled up. There was a raspberry bite mark at the angle of his jaw. Well, I thought, at least one of us got laid.

“Come by the fire and eat.” I said.

Gorgeous. What a perfectly painted little miniature. I can see it so clearly!

Oh that makes me happy. You know the kind of kneeling I mean here, right, like regular kneeling but squished, kids do it. I could for years-- not anymore.

It's called W-sitting. My kid's health check nurses told us at first to discourage it, as it could lead to toeing-in, but for my later kids they said that the latest news was that it was okay. My kids all wanted to do it. I could well into my teens, and then didn't for years, and then tried again in yoga class and was shocked to find that I could not - or at least I couldn't lie backwards with my feet like that any more. Hmm. Something to work on, like the Carrick bend.

The dogs always steal the story, don't they?

Oh yes. When I read your story I can see Crab very clearly.

Animals were so much a part of their lives, even in the city they dealt with pigs and horses and so on.

And I see these young men as wanting someone to take care of.
