all at once, you are

all at once, you are
everywhere – in the butterfly
visiting the west

side, the dragonfly passing
through the garden this morning

when i grow

when i grow
up, i want to be
a museum. you
and everyone we
know will come
from all around
the globe to see me
not just because
i have still
got it, but because
i have your
eyes, and they are
open

grandma in her seventy-eighth
year says she is here
for her final visit of America –
picking her up from the
airport, i held her for the
first time in four years
like it was the last time
and lying in the bedroom
next to hers, i listen
for the familiar rhythmic
breathing of her heavy heart
