~~ 1 ~~
 
leaning on his cane
grandpa in the nursing home
ogles the nurses
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
cat in the kitchen
unwinding a ball of yarn
with his white-tipped paw
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
rushing out the door
without glancing backward once—
terrified priestess
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
ravenous seagull
hovering near the dumpster—
last night’s crumbs for lunch
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
summer afternoon—
the ringing of clear laughter
from the neighbor’s yard
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
out-of-date lenses—
a minor blur in vision
makes him look again
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
rusting ship’s anchor
cast down at the water’s edge—
one crab scuttles by
 
~~ 8 ~~
 
old man’s rheumy eyes
flicker in recognition
in the nursing home
