Mother, Daughter, Husband

Wife:

This isn’t the first time you’ve raised the question

And just like the last time I let it be

or to put it more succinctly

I rearranged by inflection

the possibilities

I thought you understood

it isn’t “what” about us

that has appeal

but the fact that we exist

together

and how that makes us feel

 

Daughter:

Outside, the sun gathers sun and bees

flies and fleas

and poison ivy

among the dandelion greens

at night, the stars beat moonbeams

into the ground

 

Husband:

Circles insinuating circumstances

quickly, then fading

rising to the terminal

of comprehension

foreshadowing vibrations

ceaselessly shaking

in and out of rhythm
