Analysis of Bench Buddies



Bench
Close to one another
Gramma holding tight
The market basket.
Teenage flipping repeatedly
Skateboard into his hands.
Relaxed.
Gramma giggles
With gloved hand covering.

So you like that
Do you Ma’am?
Watch this one then
Nearby stair well
Becomes gymnasium
For boarder’s craft.
No scrapes, bruises, breaks.

Oh here’s the Number Eleven
Hurry.
Get on with me, Son.
(A new inter-generational
Event of happenstance.)
