i love you, granny

circle butter and jelly sandwiches

tweezing out our splinters under the sewing lamp

a glorious handmade stocking for everyone

soft thin baby hair

blooming tulips and hydrangeas

the magnolia tree

antiques like tins of tooth powder and rusty old irons

jars filled with buttons

stuffed bears in small chairs

the quilt she made in the fufu room

how quiet and clean their house was

the christmas village with sparkly snow

grandfather clock chimes

how she handled Old Bill

her stories


i’d always say, ‘i love you, granny.’

and she’d always say, ‘love you, sugar.’
