Yellow and brown, it looks soft as silk. Carefully harnessed by a lead, it scurries busily along the shopping street, following scents and looking for food. Its owner follows, burly belly just showing beneath a bulging t-shirt.
It glints in the light and catches my eye. Resting on a bare, hairy chest, shirt open to catch the sun. As its owner doses, it rises and falls with the rhythm of his breath.
Abandoned on a wall, it looks forlorn without its pair. Dropped unnoticed from a pram or pushchair, some kind stranger has placed it there. Will its owner ever return to claim it?
Bare in the heat, it keeps time as its owner plays his music feverishly. The big toe rises and falls the most. It leads the rest to follow the irresistible beat.
Pink and frilly, it is perched on top of a laughing father’s head. It’s owner is behind him, carried in her mother’s arms. She giggles and snatches at it with her little baby hands.
