Evelyn

Lets not kid ourselves,
the absolute best point in my life so far
is sitting in the kitchen, laptop whirring,
to hear faintly in the background a sort of, grunt.
Extended. And again, again, alongside
the stamp stamp of tiny feet,
because a week ago she learnt to walk
and pretty soon I’m sure she’ll talk.
But for now she growls like a tiny bear on acid
and I have a break from English lit,
because I’m laughing so hard
my eyes leak.
