"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

i am not an animal.. i am old

20 days in a covid foxhole   saw the suffering and grace

of the  almost dead and free   the Queen now flying  my

mother crying


where am i ? 

who are u ?

nice silverhaired   once daughter   one more once


several tiny periwinkle butterflies  gone by 11th morn

shorn by too aggressive chauncey  gardener  splattered

over grass  bloodywinkleconfetti    i DON’T like to watch   Eve


heartseeping after learning  mother’s delirium

slow moving + carcinoma  daughter’s delirium

incurable too



FALL 2022     I am not an animal
