My wonderful Grandmother

Dead three years now

and still she appears to pop up

in the strangest of places!

Like just a moment ago,

she was there in the mirror grimacing

as she tried to reach her arthritic old finger

to the furthest point at the back of her oratorical mouth.

Funny how the mind works.

How a sore in my mouth can cause tears

to stream down my cheeks,

and a simultaneous smile to appear

on my crooked lips, her crooked lips.
