You never spot the build-up

- how spoilt she gets -

how quietly she turns a door latch,

sneaks down the drive - early morn -

and tiptoes out from Dad’s big house

or mystery how Mummy Bear

decides on the family’s health-kick:

memory-foam, massage-chairs, porridge, hikes

and how this feral girl and bears and story

dance their destinies, in tension, truth.
