617 625-8141 By Jasen Sousa

617 625-8141


This morning I called my grandmother.
There was no answer.

She must have went for a walk
to Davis Square with her elderly neighbor friend
to pick up milk and bread,

or

maybe she was down on her hands and knees
scrubbing the bathroom floor
restoring grout to its original shine,

or

maybe she had the mixer on
blending ingredients to a delicious cake,

or

maybe she was in the cellar
putting clothes in the dryer, gently
as she put muffins in the oven.

I call her every morning
knowing there won’t be an answer.
