Two figures walking in the car park,
One tall, bobbed brown hair curling under her chin,
Neat, tidy, ends tucked in
The other small, an erratic planet
Following her mother, the Sun, in a solipsistic orbit
On solid legs.
Behind the little figure, trailing on a string
is a toy puppy, ears flapping, tail wagging
Bumping on tiny red wheels over the uneven tarmac.
Two figures walking together, mother and child
