Cursing Stone

Banjoes picked through Kentucky blue 
grass twenty-two inches long 
awaiting a gurgle of life
blood, and you appeared at sunset.

Eighty-two years from a body
lasting is my love for you every
day broke on the day I became
life tears me up after your

death brings me here shattered 
breath I succor from fettered 
souls who watch me watch
you had a birthday today.

I grieve and curse your card
Grandpa.
