remembrance day

eight rushed to get his army men
out the kitchen
in time to line them up
in salute
while Oh Canada played on the radio.

then he remained quiet and still
through the two minutes of radio silence...

before taking the troops with him
to line up on the couch
to pay tribute
with him
as he watched the ceremonies
on television.

he's a funny boy, that eight.
