from seashells to grandmother’s house we go

seashell injures toe
between pinky and french fry
grandmother hearsay

this little piggy
mashed potatoes french fries
sweet potato auch

toasting my bagel
one side with half silver tin
rest on other side

purchasing kraft stock
enjoying ten grandchildren
i was the youngest

fifteen years younger
had i not been ten tins
one for each grandchild

giving me chocolate
no belief in allergies
eyes changing scarlet

diminutions
fading to count dracula
weakening breaths

old enough to know
seven six years older
mothers are wisest !
