Day 15

Woolly jumper

Written by A.J. McIntosh

© Museum of Childhood, Edinburgh

Each line of loops a new return
to pipesmoke, coughs in the car to school
the stomach churn at milk warmed sour
that smell of damp Pure Scottish Wool
and British Worsted. Hours
of the late Empire’s reverses
spools of regret, of mend, make do
of not pulling off in case you’d reap
some shapeless slough of sheep
crossed with a kangaroo.
