During 1998 I organised a series of exhibitions for graduates from the sculpture department of Wimbledon School of Art. ‘Childhood Sweethearts’ was exhibited in my show, ‘Dumped’. The following statement appeared on the wall next to the piece:

Childhood Sweethearts

They met at break-time,
from twelve till one.
Except on Tuesday, when,
she was crisp monitor.

They always played on the see-saw
until the school bought a swing.
She dumped him and jumped off
because the swing looked better.
