Each One Must Walk This Way

Althea Romeo-Mark


Dey say, granny,
tek it easy
stay out de kitchen
You hands tremble,
spill you tea, drop dishes.

you too eager
to help youself
an’ others,
sit down. doan bother.

Irritation march cross faces
when granny haul memory
out she cupboard
like she meking inventory.

Dey sit like dey in ants nest
not listening
