Spirit Level

on the birth day
of this man-child who transforms
heavy ancestral

names into an average
- or above - boy,
the grandfather feints

and dodges the new

special fx foam broadsword
catches a cardboard shield.
laughter. surprise

the day’s tasks release.
in a living room empty of all
furniture except a chess table

Dad crafted over 40 years ago,
leaves his spirit level -
a 24 inch florescent green symbol.

you blogged - a celebration methinks? If so many happinesses for the occasion (and if not many happinesses for no apparent reason) :)
