Preparing a Child for the Physical World

By Brian Comber

She displaces bath water in the same way a thousand foot container ship displaces the ocean.

The characters in a black & white film are unaware of their future.

A duelling pistol is like a sea creature.

No one whistles cedar-cedar-cedar-sticki-see-pee.

You play in a burnt out car, oblivious to its history.

A woman is disturbed by the ripples from a Hockney.

You search for a lost dog, all the while calling the wrong name.

Another woman falls from the sky.

You take comfort from the ghost of your stillborn twin.

Britten is not compared to Strummer.

The touch of hands is one small step for a man…

What or who connects all these events and do they prepare you for the physical world?
