between vacuuming

between vacuuming
the house, cleaning
out and restocking
the fridge, ironing
the dinner napkins,
folding and unfolding
the sheets, trips to the
airport, thawing the
ham, one more
grocery run, and
refueling the gas
tank, mom and dad
meet in the backyard
for a breather,
holly-hunting

things we leave unsaid

things we leave unsaid
sprout tendrils, winding their way
around suitable

hosts, a cellular invasion,
a parasite of memory
