21 Longing

Cover Image

Cakes and Easter Sundays,

summers and Popsicles

Grandma calling out,

It's breakfast time

in echoed mealtime seconds,

there was a time

when I didn't long

for the heat of past moments

just heat,

but things like memories

are easily slipped,

like fall to winter

and spring to summer

Popsicles and sweat,

tankers of water

tiny reservoirs

for lost time

sunny days at grandmas

but now

An empty space at the table
