planting a tree
in my family's name
of Italians
etched into the bark

  trumpet flowers
silent on their vines –
I shudder
as you reach out
to touch me

    I have become
a wind-whipped fire
throwing sparks –
walking in tight circles
fails to cool my fury

retirement is hard
leaving the old
familiar world
of work & friends
the world of make-believe

  Christmas Day
at the seniors' residence
the only one
whose son is there to see him
taking his afternoon nap
