Digging a hole.

Digging a deep pit.

Digging a deep hole.
Deep enough to

The triangle house
And play

This is the fourth series about my stray pet ‘Melvin’ who is mentioned in my previous poetry. One day, I happened to spot it digging the soil and poo outside my uncle’s house.

In the morning, my brother was preparing to go out who often enters the bathroom to apply hair gel, combing hair, spraying deodorant onto his body, and many other actions. My twenty-seventh months toddler is curious of his actions so he is like my brother’s tail.

21 Months Old Toddler

Jump onto the chairs
Removing curious stuffs on table.
Pulling cables
Playing the fans buttons
Pressing remote controls
Running to the kitchen
Pulling utensils out of the cupboard
Imagining cooking
Imitating people cook

Pluck out the cube blocks
Pluck in the cube blocks

Banging toys onto the floor
Wow, the loud sound.

Wriggling on the floor
Shouting to go out
Wanting to observe more

Pulling the petals of flowers
Catch a butterfly
See its smallness and beauty
Then let it go

Chasing a bird
Chasing a cat
Chasing a dog
Touching rabbit
Pulling the tails
Stomping onto ants
Scared by the cockroach
Disgusted by the hairy legs

All is done because I’m curious
SPANK
But I’m spanked by my parents
for not listening.

Throughout accompanying my 21 months old toddler, the above inspiration came as I try to understand him by putting myself in his shoes. “Pulling the tails” is an addition because I feel that one day my cute baby will do so.
