An Uneasy Disclosure-dedicated to my grandmother

Pictures resurfacing

an unease in disclosure

black and white

teared and attached

together

 

shaking and weeping

sobs echoing

reverberating

through glass windows

as she sat there

sprawled and scattered

 

what will become

of all these distant memories?

hollowed and tainted

damaged and frail

 

she is now squinting

puffy green eyes

now glowing with humor

there her grandma is

underneath the plastic protective cover

dressed like royalty

wearing a tender grin

 

and she knew

once upon a time long ago

these memories

defined wholesomeness

now stored as antiquity

for all to gaze at.
