A Small Stone Number 31 -- the last


TO A GRANDDAUGHTER
With tight fists and mewing cry
You demand attention
With apricot down on cushion cheeks
And eyes like smoky Lapis Lazuli
You demand attention
With soft burps and semi permanent hiccups
And a look that seems as old as granite
You hold us as we hold you
and we’re together forever.
