My Niece 2

Aunt and Niece

I  shall be the best auntie ever.

Small, beautiful and perfectly formed.  Last Saturday I got to hold my baby niece for the first time.  She looks like a small China doll with porcelain skin and thick dark hair that frames her face so neatly that it looked as though it had been styled.  Truthfully, I was a little nervous.  She was so tiny, so delicate that I was afraid I might break her.  ‘She’s tougher than she looks,’ said my brother’s partner.

I hope I will be a good aunt.  The sort of aunt she can confide in.  I’m afraid that I will forever be known as ‘my mad old aunt in Cambridge’ which is a fairly accurate description. Mother had told my brother that she resembled me and dragged out an old photo to prove it.  Poor girl.  I can’t wait until she is old enough for toys.  I love shopping for children.

    and somewhere alfie cries
    and says “enjoy his every smile
    you can see in the dark
    through the eyes of laura mars”
    how did it go so fast
    you’ll say
    as we are looking
    back
    and then we’ll
    understand
    we held gold dust
    in our
    hands

    Gold Dust.

    She’s certainly sweet. Maybe now you’ve got someone else to focus on, you’ll stop being so self-obsessed
