Grandfather has a junk shop where his granddaughter likes to play. It is a treasure trove of clothes to dress up in, boxes full of old postcards to look at, chairs with forgotten oddments stuffed down the sides, constantly chiming clocks all showing a different time and a television set that nearly works.
‘I am a Queen in my palace.
I have to remember to lift my skirts as I walk
like the ladies in the olden days.
Grandfather kissed my hand
and said, ‘Your Majesty’.
