  1. Robot

    It was still his favourite toy
    that robot with the flashing eyes,
    a birthday present when he was only five.
    He called it James,
    he couldn’t say why.
    He didn’t know a James
    so he was pleased to be original.
    There was a lever called a joystick
    because it brought him joy
    and gave him perfect control.
    Back and forth, round in circles,
    blinking and winking away.
    He called all the shots.

    Now he’s grown up,
    almost nine
    and James is feeling his age
    (yes, of course he can feel)
    so his movements are slower
    and his lights less bright and sparkly.
    Age has undermined his splendour,
    it happens,
    he knew it.
    The joystick is a bit wonky
    so control is imperfect
    but it doesn’t matter,
    the joy is the same.
    James is still James
    forever.
