MONUMENTAL MILLICENT

 

I measure my footsteps

carefully now

Will these be

my last moments here?

Photographs upon the walls

salt and pepper shakers

held so dear

I clenched my hands around them

when I was just a child

Will All disappear

when her last breaths

hang silent in the air

thick with love

When Monumental Millicent

grows large among

the Still?
