Digging

Scottish summer holiday

Digging,

excavating the dried-out cement.

 

Deeper and deeper

we go.

 

to where?

 

Record player;

Stranglers & Golden Brown

 

Funny music

for

nine-year olds.

 

And safe in the knowledge

that we are exploring,

getting somewhere.

 

Chipping away,

Scraping,

small rocks and pebbles, undermining

the wall’s foundations

 

And the owner

threatening

legal action

as his wall

threatens

to topple

 

Worried

about

criminality

and

compensation.

 

My friend’s parents paid.
