That Thing Without Feathers

We talked of your grandma’s fading
dry-eyed, practical; of how to help
your mother. Yet grief weeps out
regardless of our attempts to sanitize
and wrap it tight

                  Why else are my dreams
only of those I’ve lost—
of making coffee for my father
wrecking my grandmother’s kitchen
in search of a bowl of sugar?
