If you put me in a room with my grandparents
I would not recognize them.
They expired early
Or were banished
I am not exaggerating.
Gazela died two decades before I was born
The gall bladder operation was a success but the patient
Not so much.
Moritz died fifteen years later
Just cratered in his barbershop
Annie spent all her days in the madhouse
Hearing spirits and afeared
Victor just disappeared
One hundred and eight years ago.
Not even my mother would have recognized him.
