Spines of My Grandmothers


Spines of My Grandmothers


Great expectations bring disappointment.

Even the boys in the boat

couldn’t solve the devil’s arithmetic.

After three cups of tea

the wise woman

and the woodswoman

didn’t need the help

to know the fact of a doorframe.

When the drummers were women

animal spirits spoke.

Love is in the earth.

C.J. Prince
