Random Poem:

An obsolete waltz.
RueUrsula

grandfather
 1
aimlessly humming tunes
 2
of an antique song
 3
or forgotten nursery rhyme
 4
taught to you since birth
 5
now fragments, lost in
 6
curdled caverns of your
 7
gray-haired brain
 8
in a chicagoland taxi-cab
 9
you smelled of tobacco
 10
peppermints and lozenges.
 11
i sat next to you
 12
your zaftig arms
 13
a stage for dancing, wispy hairs
 14
almost around me
 15
but not quite
 16
you don't visit anymore, papa
 17
