Mr Frazer

Forward: Mr Frazer was my teacher in my final year of Primary School

I could never picture Mr Frazer

aka ‘Sir’

Playing tennis.

He just didn’t seem the type

to wear whites

or wield a racket.

And yet,

on a shelf in the art cupboard,

behind the pens and the glue

was a single white tennis shoe.

Dunlop Green Flash,

size nine.

That shoe rarely saw the light of day,

but it’s presence filled every crevice in the room

with subjugated silence.

We all knew it was there even though

none of us had felt it yet.

This is excellent. Memories of the slipper linger long!
