THE BEST G-SON

Epiphany: I really would not care if my grandma died

It would hurt my Mom, and –

Perhaps by extension, it would bother me

But I cannot say –┬áleast not honestly

That my grandma’s death would be my tragedy

In addition, I declare the same absence for both

They can even die together. Accident. Boat.

I’ll hardly be moved, tears oh-so remote

“I’m sorry Grand Mother. I don’t know why –

I would not care if you died”
