Eighty Plus
by Carol Dee Meeks


The phone rings loud and brings a stir
with voice in tones we barely heard.
My spouses? sibling cries with slur;
their mom in coma, speech absurd.

We travel miles across the state
with rain like walls of water falls
and middle line of lane like slate.
I?m blind at night. I spoke in drawls.

Yet she controls her sons of three
and celebrates decades of eight.
In psycho state and misery
her years reign down as fate in hate.

For years I feared her dominance,
now watch her lose her eminence.
Oh Lord! I pray help me to be
much kinder when I am eighty.
