Holding Grandma’s paper skin hand
A priest talks about forgiveness
Jesus
Bread
Her fingers are long
Knuckles like burls
I lean in close to smell her
Baby powder and drugstore perfume
Make up that is long expired
She doesn’t stand to sing anymore
On her perch
The Pew
Queen Bird

Overheard on the 99

my body
the wasteland
pockmark tumbleweed
a sigh
the unknowing of a memory
open mouth song
kiss
scream
tornado in ecstasy
fear in the cobwebs
varicose veins coming in like grey
an ache for the
next generation
bloodline urgency
the heavy clouds
a womb
