one hamper
two empty laundry baskets
and all his clothes
on the floor

space Christina Nguyen – USA


buying things
that seem to matter
books, boxes, bags, bowls –
still my tears fall,
enough to fill them all

space Joy McCall – UK


i think: why buy it
at my age?
i think: why not?
someone in the family
will get it

space miriam chaikin – USA

again she asks
how old was mother?
counting the years
as if they were beads
on a broken rosary

space Margaret Dornaus – USA


she stares at the wall
when we come to visit,
ninety-nine year old,
as if waiting for something
else to happen in her world

space Patricia Prime – New Zealand
