Ah--Hazy Image (ver 2)
Three words strung on a lineless card that
my grandmother wrote some point in time,
with the mantel clock that refuses to chime
and the pearl-headed pins for ladies' hats...
things she left for me to find (and deal with)
one month past her death
where none of her seems to be left
except this note, less than a line.
No photograph or memory
accompanied it or explained
when I sorted through the stack
of cards and clippings, near the back
found "Ah--Hazy Image," remembered pain...
Grandma, was this note for me?
