boy and bird

May 19, 2007 at 7:59 pm (blog, Family & Friends)

Other than the owl perched on his shoulder, the school portrait of my cousin Daniel, aged nine, in my parents’ living room, resembles  that of any child in Britain. He wears a white shirt, tie and a big smile, his hair snipped by a seasoned hand.

In a surrealist school they’d twist his head to face the other way. In a few years a parrot should be used. Not as wise as an owl, but you can teach it to swear.
