the last thanksgiving

my parents were alive

my mother disoriented

my father bewildered

by my mother

 

and i brought

the food from

Boston Market

 

i promised

one more year

no strokes

no heart attacks

and i will make the turkey

 

today i make turkey

for myself

and my pets

 

i miss my parents

and 2007

 

when anything was still possible
