Spoetify #10 Push It (Salt n Pepa, written not so early this morning with a playful dog)

The pram-man in the showroom was proud to inform me

That this model ‘can do it all’.

It off-roads easily

Brakes on a dime

And has the largest storage capacity of any brand,

Comparable or otherwise.

‘Great for the shopping!’ he intoned with a humanoid charm.

My eyes were as big as my belly

The adventures we’ll have, I murmured.

We’re not in London anymore

We live in a land of hills, slopes, litigious pavements.

The first time I pushed it – with you – inside

Up the steps to my house

A windowcleaner, idling, watched me

‘That looks like hard work’ he chuckled.

I huffed a grin but

As with anything a woman faces repeatedly

Overtime I developed a party line.

‘Yes it’s good for the biceps!’

Breezily, cheerily, fuck-you-ing on the quiet.

I never pushed it without damp sweat

Gathering like clouds

At my hairline, armpits, my groin.

When I think of our magical adventures

I think of sweat.

And yes, it was good for storage

Especially good for hiding the pre-packed steak that I stole

From a supermarket.

Just to redress the balance

Of being a good and virtuous mother

Who had magical adventures.
