to walk


bandy-legged, newspaper under arm,

skinny little paul—neighbor, friend, critic—

walks and walks and walks


he was in the cemetery

when we buried my grandmother—

grayed beard and bushy eyebrows

flittering in the wind

he remembered her fondly

as neighbor, friend, critic


he didn’t want a ride (he never does)

but said he wanted to visit

someone earthed long ago

in a distant row of stones


his mother, whom I never heard of,

his father, who disappeared,

or a sister, brother, or cousin?

he never said


he turned to the hill

that rolled down to a wooded creek

happy to see us, he said,

happy one more day

to walk
