First Born

Anointed

blue ribbon shrine

pristine shoes

Daddy toe waltzes

bedroom sanctum

car keys

genetic guilt

default executor

Last shovelful of dirt

That Age Thing

Awake

Joints oppose motion

Eyelids sag & collect night’s insomnia

Hot flashes+thyroid storms

Pill ledgers

That age thing

I become my mother

Nursing Rhymes

Poetweeters Note:  I changed the title of the poem from “Nursery Rhymes” to “Nursing Rhymes.” 
 
 

Humpty tumbles

Boughs break

Cradles fall

Jack rolls down

& cracks his crown

All the king’s men useless

Bedtime fables end
