mother
who taught me to speak for myself
why can't
I break through
this silence between us

a place to start . . .
after years of silence
she tells me
in a handwritten letter
how I failed as a father

this great urge
to grubble in the earth
seed catalogs
strewn across the carpet
and the garden not yet thawed


space Kirsty Karkow - USA

bushels of grapes
lined up ready for Grandpa
to crush for wine;
after forty years the old world
still in his bones

Fifty years later
learning a new language
the same panic
when the teacher calls on me
hands and knees still bruised
