Repast


Iota of Time 

After we shared the smoked mackerel,
olive bread, and wild rice we sautéed
with fresh sweet pepper, 
you played your symphony in four parts
- music strung together while caring for your 
failing mother still sporting a crown.
Her tempestuous majesty plays a little too long,
scoring no surprises. But you orchestrate
a chance that the last second, at least the last,
may kindness be her finale.
