grandchildpoem #2

it’s an odd sensation to be
at the helm says my brother-in-law
I’m now the oldest of my line
I tell him about rachel
bustling into daycare
this is my grandma she is
very old she’s going to die
she’s not going
to be here very long
I think I’ll be around
a little while longer
I say and she amends
she’s very old she’s
going to be here for
a little while longer
but not for very long
how young we begin
to taste the salt spray
