He enjoys making carparks out of vehicles,
lining up pigs like a Post Office queue.
He likes Weetabix, then Shreddies, then
Cornflakes, then Rice Pops in his bowl.
He needs milk with a red tractor on the label.
He needs his farm to live on his desk.
He needs popcorn during football and an orange
during the Gruffalo. He clumps yellow magnets
together and makes snakes out of the red,
purple, green, and blue. He needs order,
the way the middle follows the beginning
and comes before an end.
