Dying Grandfather

dying grandfather
child of hot rods and whiskey
unsure bellowing at nurses
defines a life of loudness,
cargiving and alcoholism

Forgotten Plague

grandfather 
died in the forgotten plague
of the last century*
I sit musing under the cherry
startled  by a white possum 


*tuberculosis

Honeysuckle

heartfelt
bond to grandfather's farm
in the south
tobacco grows in his dark earth
honeysuckle too
