a day

just a day, though the date pools

reflections,  landscapes of parents

clustering on the edges of this month

like a hundred collages constructed

from images left behind

in the cameras of memory:

a gesture or laugh

cakes, gifts, birthdays

signifying days we came

together as more than

just ourselves

 

We should have said

be the people you want to be

who we, always their children

thought we knew
