How the aunty and her nephew spent their Sunday




The nephew:
Eating green tomatoes that have been ripening on the window sill
Climbing the rise on the front lawn
Sleeping with splashes of milk on his cheeks
Saying Doh Doh Doh a lot
Giggling, laughing, guffawing
Standing up in the bath, watching the water fall down the sides

The aunty:
Watching the man in her life work on a painting
Gathering lemons from the lemon tree she never knew they had
Making a banana cake
Singing the sleep song
Kissing it better
