A house in Zacatecas, México
 


Is that Grandmother
hiding behind the curtains
from her younger self?

Tulips

toothless grandmother
admiring yellow tulips
from her rocking chair
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
among prisoners
a whispered tale of tulips
just beyond the walls
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
the gate-side keening
of the gardener at dawn—
his trampled tulips

Bones

Agave past bloom, turning brittle in the sun, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
 


Tell me, Grandmother,
why the old agave’s bones
pierce each passing cloud.
