Tying shoelaces with my nephew

Yep. Yep.
Bunny ear. Yep.
Hmm. Nice one.
Yep. Yep.
Can you smell leeks?
Yep. Soft, like ageing palms
in mashed potato. Well done.
Let’s start again. Yep.
Bunny ear, call it Sammy
build it a hutch in the back garden
but keep the cat away. Yep.
Oh look, the cat likes Sammy.
It will sit where the hutch was
and purr when it’s no longer alive.
Yep. Yep. Done. You’re amazing.
