The Dad

is on the platform.
His baby son
is gurgling away
in the pushchair.
“Where’s the train?”
asks the dad.
The boy says nothing.
“Point at the train for daddy”
says the dad.
Still the boy says nothing.
“Go on, point at the train for daddy”
says the dad.
The boy looks at his mum
but does not point
at the train.
The boy doesn’t care
about the train
or about his dad.
“Point at the train
or we’re not getting on”
says the dad.
The dad looks over
at the mum.
He is angry, frustrated.
The boy has let him down.
The boy who won’t
point at the train.
