Then I found a Southbank tree and I actually gave it a hug. (No one does that in Hertfordshire.) The roots reached under the pavement and anchored in London clay.
After that I noticed how they played and fell and played and fell together. (Bailed, they said) They learned caballerials and flips together.
I stayed. I can’t stand on a skateboard while it’s moving. But I’m still here and so is the tree.
