inside grandmother’s box of miniature

kitchenware blue tin tea cup coffee pot  

saucer I’m Alice French raspy voice vinyl

press ear the record skips aproned figure

rights the machine grandmother face like

patchwork blanket eyes closed body stiff

tea cups jump – just a nap under medicine

right dose ends record grandmother hums

nursery rhyme slump on the cheese grater

sit in my echo sing words to numb melody
