another one of those things

February 21, 2013 § 1 Comment

I say
it is time to go
she does not move
I say again

time
reluctantly she
takes my arm and
we make the
walkway to the car

she fills the
passenger window
with waves
in the hundreds

it’s not the last time you’re
going to see those young’uns
I say, finding the gear

I know she says
narrowing her eyes
half those waves
were for the ones
you never give

I nod to let
her know I know
that it is
another one of
those things
she cleans up for me
