granny

as a child

I didnt always like being forced to stay with

granny

her home smelt like perfumed soap, avocados and pear.

I remember once when I lost my pants

she said all she had, was giant granny underwear

she was tidy, very tidy,

didn’t like things out of place

I didnt like staying at grannys

because it just seemed so strict

and if you didnt eat all your food

there was nothing else after it

it was very strange at grannys

and sometimes I just didnt feel very comfortable

but granny would always try

they would take us out to explore

I remember a few winters

seeing Sheffield covered in snow

and the pretty trees and pretty leaves

glistening in the sun

I remember a few winters

seeing Sheffield covered in snow

her garden covered and cold.
